I’m not aware that this small oil has ever had a name. It depicts a pink flower – although I’m not certain quite what type. The oil is painted on hardboard (the old brown stuff made of compressed wood chip) and at 9.5″ by 6″ is unusually small for one of Terry’s oils. It is also varnished in a very shiny varnish – hence the poor quality of the image as it reflects light strongly. It has been reframed (by the artist – or at least the frame (1990s) is newer than the picture as it is possible it had not been framed previously.
It is signed in the lower right corner but the date is also unclear. I don’t recall it being painted and it is on hardboard so that puts and absolute upper date on it of about 1970. My guess is 1950s rather than 19060s, but that attribution is uncertain.
