Dancing before Dinner. Original Painting by John Dyer featuring Cornish Lobster

This rare oil painting by John Dyer celebrates the fishing heritage of Cornwall and the importance of the sea to families living in the county. Autobiographical in nature, the painting references the artist and his wife who swirl around the central still life image of the Cornishware blue and white plate with lobster and seafood. Daffodils decorate the table. An entrancing painting.
