The work measures about 10 x 4½in (23 x 11cm). My wife bought it over 30 years ago and had it reframed and reglazed with a new mount. We have often wondered who the artist was and whether they have done any other similar work.

The horizon effect is cleverly done, creating the impression of a settlement of some sort. But zoom in on the image and you can see it has been achieved simply by use of some very delicate and judiciously placed brushstrokes.

Thank you in advance to the ATG community for any information or suggestions.
