Dawn by Algernon Newton – famous artist but location is unknown!

This dreamlike landscape was painted by Algernon Newton RA. 1880 – 1968. His works are well known and many were reproduced as prints, I own one published 1955. The copyright of this work is now owned by Hull Museums and they have kindly given me permission to publish an image of the original painting here. They have dated the original as 1936. It would appear that there is no record of the location of this scene. All that is known is that the artist worked in Cornwall, Yorkshire and London.

Interesting fact: AN’s family were artists and also the founders of Windsor & Newton artists materials.

CLUES SO FAR:Is this an ash tree? Do you recognise the river or is it a canal?
