Artist unknown. Style of late Goya.
Oil on canvas. 30 cm x 45 cm.
Ochre foreground suggests oats or wheat.
Upper left is cerulean. Banded clouds
with alizarin crimson undersides
dissolve into haze of darkening red.
Middle left is burnt umber and ivory black.
At centre is a wide horizontal swath
of glowing cadmium red edged
with cad yellow billowing right,
swept by dry westerly wind.
Downwind of char and onrushing flame
is an indistinct squiggle of dark,
perhaps a human figure. Running.
