Painting, oil on board, Ramsden Square by local artist Ron Moon. The painting is part of a series (TH.0022-TH.0030) commissioned by Barrow Borough Council to commemorate the centenary of the Town Hall in 1987. Ron Moon prefers to paint in oils and is particularly inspired by still life and landscapes. He worked as a local government finance officer (for Barrow Council and also Dalton Urban District Council pre 1974 reorganisation) and would paint in the evening. This work probably took about a week, working from photographs and a drawing. He exhibited with the Barrow and also Ulverston Society of Artists and the Lakes Artists Society.
