    The Fishing Village

    £276

    Available

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    An outstanding modernist style painting depicting a fishing village, dated 1955.

    In the background, rows of huts line the ocean front. In the foreground, fishing nets are placed over a wooden support, hanging up to dry by the sand.

    Muted tones of moss green, burnt sienna and blue-grey make up the palette, giving it a really lovely earthy feel, and a typical mid century vibe. The artist has skilfully managed to capture the malleable and translucent nature of the nets, but has retained a modernist ethos through the use of faceted brushstrokes and the flattening of space.

    The painting is housed in a stunning olive green frame with visible wood grain and a gilt lining. The colour of the frame complements and enhances the green in the painting.

    Both painting and frame are in excellent vintage condition.

    Size:  46 x 66 cm (including frame)

    Winter Walk

    £276

    Available

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A wintry town landscape painted in a typical modernist style. Expressionist brushstrokes have been applied swiftly and with vigour in non naturalistic colours. We get a sense of the artist’s subjective perspective and the mood he/she was trying to convey, rather than a realistic depiction of the town landscape. Two figures feature in the lower section of the picture, and we can imagine them walking through the cold, crisp air.

    The painting is housed in a very elegant dark wood frame with an inner gilt window with a deep profile. Both painting and frame are in excellent vintage condition.

    Misty Window

    £255

    Available

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A simple composition with a strikingly modernist ethos. Here the landscape has been reduced down to basic colour and paint markings. The artist is clearly not trying to mimic real life, and has chosen instead draw attention to the fact that this is his own rendition of the elements of the landscape. There is a distinct rawness to the painting – the artist has not hidden the strokes of the paint brush, or the background of the substrate he is working on, nor has he masked the way in which he has rendered the rocks and trees with his cross hatching technique.

    This fantastic painting is housed in a gilt frame and is in excellent vintage condition.

    The rooftops of the homes, painted with a layer of frosted white, have a thin layer of snow left unmelted despite the sun’s shining rays.

    Additionally, the blazing sky painted in orange with an underlying layer of blue really picks up the colours of the homes wonderfully.

    The Parlour

    £297

    Available

    A cosy corner of a homely interior setting, painted in oil in a fairly mellow palette. A candle sits atop a sideboard, with a landscape painting handing above. A further portrait painting and a circular object hang on the wall next to it. To the left, a curtain seems to lead into a corridor or separate room, adding an element of mystery to the painting. There is a nice balance to the composition, with each object depicted seeming to own its space. The palette that the artist used is fairly restrained, with similar colours repeated throughout the composition.

    The painting is housed in a white and silver frame with a linen lined border. The painting is in excellent vintage condition. The frame has some minor scuffs and a small age mark to the left edge, but overall it is in good condition.

    An outstanding and lighthearted still life portrayal of florals placed in a blue slender vase and brown pitcher respectively.

    The flowers – painted in soft yellow hues – have great angular edges and are looking cheery. The artist has chosen not to portray the full representation of the vases, adding  an element of mystery to the overall work.

  • Monument

    £267

    Available

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A striking scene of two figures in a continental town square surrounded by landmarks, painted in oil onto board. This painting has been worked in the ‘post impressionist’ style,  characterised by strong colours and fierce brushwork. We see loose dabs of the brush, painted in non-naturalistic colours. The artist has chosen not to paint the town scene as it appears in reality, but has instead imbued with an energy, light, and dynamism that shows off his or her emotional connection with the townscape. The town appears quiet, with only two figures visible, but the artist has painted the architecture surrounding them with such vigour that they carry life and energy of their own.

    This oil on board is in excellent vintage condition. It is housed in an original gilt frame with an inner linen and white border. The frame has some marks and scuffs (as seen in the photos)

    Available

    A deep and soulful abstract composition rendered in oil. Swathes of colour in varying forms tease our imagination – do we see something recognisable? Angled forms peek out in different directions, reminiscent of the silhouette of an almost undiscernible city skyline at night time. For others perhaps the composition is a reminder of jazz music – with its careful balance of spirit, freedom and form.

    Sailing Blue (very large)

    £330

    Available

    Free UK shipping.

    A large, panoramic oil depicting a traditionally-rigged sailing vessel, painted in oil in 1947. This bold, expressive oil features rich colouring and distinct and dynamic brushstrokes. The artist’s confident and skilful painterly manner is certainly apparent, and the combination of the rich palette, dynamic strokes and large size would make this a statement piece in any interior.

    The painting is housed in a wide and robust gilt and green frame that suits it very well. The painting has areas of craquelure and some minor areas of surface paint loss which are visible upon close inspection and are typical for an oil painting of this age (as shown in photos), but these do not detract from the overall attractiveness of the painting. The frame is in good condition with some very minor scuffs to the inner window.

    Double Sided Portrait I

    £165

    Available

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    An intriguing double sided oil on board:  one side depicts a pair of women looking into a book, and the other side features a striking single portrait of a woman.

    The painting of the two ladies with the book is very textured, with multi directional and distinct brushstrokes creating a very dynamic and layered image. On the other side, the portrait of the woman is smoother in texture overall, but still has a very three dimensional effect. The woman has an air of mystery about her, leaving us wondering what she might be thinking about.

    Painted onto board, both paintings are in very good vintage condition and can be displayed on either side. There is some slight paint loss to the very edges of the board but certainly does not detract from the overall charm of either picture. It could be displayed in its current state on an easel or leant against a shelf.

    Reverie

    £150

    Available

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    This modernist style painting strikes a fine balance between realism and abstraction. We see a calming and dreamy riverscape on the one hand, but the combination of bold lines, subjective use of colour and  distinct forms and shapes adds an element of abstraction to the piece. We’re unable to tie the landscape to any particular place or moment in time, which lends a sense of mystery to the piece. It allows us to let our minds wander, transporting us to a distant place faraway, away from the stresses of everyday life. The post-impressionist elements of this painting would make it a good fit for a contemporary interior.

    This oil on board comes unframed, and has minor surface marks on the edges that would be easily hidden by a frame.

    A sombre panoramic landscape presenting vast open lands of shrubs, with mountains fading into the distance.

    The brushstrokes, though soft and subtle, are thoughtful and precise, imbuing  the work with an overall sense of nostalgia and mystery.

    It is worth mentioned that the edges of the work remain visible, exposing the substrate beneath it. This vignette effect further draws our attention to and emphasises the subject matter.
