It also appears on The Maps of Tolkien's Middle-earth, illustrated by John Howe, so I think it is John's art.

Oh my days.... thanks Jeremy. It is sat 2 feet from me and I just had complete brain freeze and knew I had seen it but could not for the life of me place it.

Delete this if you like Jeremy. Save me from my own stoopid

No worries, someone might be interested in the book as it was just published in November/December.

Here's the publisher's info page:

I didn't realise how close this is to the FR cover piece he also did. Very similar.
