“A View of Sandy Cove” by Maud Lewis
Here is a classic and charming Maud Lewis. It combines many of her key elements in a simple and colourful composition. It is one of Maud’s more valuable pieces as it recently sold at auction for over $20,000. The Sotheby’s art expert described it as, “a vivid and gorgeous thing”, and I think she’s right. Everett with his whip, and Maud with her load, lovingly portrayed on a beautiful fall day in the Maritimes. Yes it is a cry for help, but delivered in a simple, joyful and charming package.
