The Land God Gave to Cain

1967, acrylic on board

Dell’Orco’s pronounced marking and use of colour is fundamental to his work. In this piece, he highlights the foreground figure through a bright red coat set against the cooler mountains behind, defined by dark, vertical pencil markings. Many illustrators worked with paint alone; Dell’Orco delighted in mixed media, using charcoal and pencil along with paint.

The original painting is approximately 39 cm wide x 55 cm tall.The artwork is float mounted on to conservation grade mountboard and presented in a white wooden box frame glazed with anti-reflective glass.
