A finely executed work, circa 1990, featuring a landscape with distinctive beautiful mallee trees (a type of eucalyptus), a number of sheep contentedly grazing among them, signed at lower right by listed Australian artist ALAN TREGENZA (1961-). The work measures 15" by 20 1/2" (24 1/2" by 30" framed). A copy of an old invoice affixed to the backing (including the title "Last Mallees on the XXXXX") shows the piece was purchased with a deposit given to a gallery, apparently the Kingston House Gallery, of Glandore, South Australia, in November 1992. The pastel is in perfect condition. Tregenza's works have appeared in Australian auctions, mainly around Adelaide, but there seems to be little biographical information available. A number of works feature landscapes with these trees, and drawn in this color palette. This example seems to be larger than any that have been auctioned. Photos are through non-glare glass which should be replaced as it dulls detail.
