  • Horses on the Meadow

    £380

    Available

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A beautifully executed mid century composition in oil, painted in 1949.

    In this picture, we see a a group of animals including a horse grazing on the meadow. Long, gestural brushstrokes fill the canvas with thick paint, creating a wonderfully textured effect.  The artists skilful and expressive brushwork blends the paint beautifully to create the three dimensional forms of the animals. It is clear that the artist has incorporated more than just the visual scene before him – we get a sense of the way the light hits the meadow, the slight wind in the air, the movement of the sky above and the blades of the grass below.

    This excellent painting is housed in a solid wood frame which adds to its ‘country’ appeal. Both painting and frame are in very good vintage condition.

  • Winter Boats

    Sold

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A large and very atmospheric mid century oil composition, painted in 1967.

    Two boats sit quietly on the ice, a static but powerful image. The red and black of the boats contrast starkly against the white and light blue of the ice. Thickly applied layers of paint capture the robustness and depth of the winter ground. We can imagine the artist moving his paint brush in a dance across the surface, building up the layers slowly but surely.  Two thirds of the composition is dedicated purely to the white icy ground, giving us a sense of the expansiveness of the wintery landscape.

    The painting is housed in a stunning wide profile frame with an inner gilt border that further illuminates the painting. Both painting and frame are in good vintage condition.

    Available

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A large and colourful mid century abstract composition, painted in oil onto canvas and dated 1967.

    This abstract expressionist composition features a myriad of gestural brushstrokes in a vivid array of colours. We get a sense of the artist’s brush and the vigour in the way it moves on the canvas, applying sections of colour in quick and swift strokes. Yet the composition and the overall balance of colours and the way they have been placed on the canvas is carefully considered, creating a picture that has a distinct harmony, balance and vividness.

    The painting is housed in a simple wood frame. Both painting and frame are in good vintage condition.

  • Spanish Evening

    Sold

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    An excellently executed mid century semi abstract oil on board, painted in 1959 by well known  artist Ivar Morsing.

    Three figures working the land are depicted against an abstract background. A deep, rich and vivid palette of browns, orange, black and greens give this picture its punch. Contrasting blocks of saturated colour have been applied to the surface, illustrating the artist’s cubist influences, which he is most known for. This gorgeous semi-abstract painting in oil would certainly stand out in any interior, whether traditional or modern.

    The painting is beautifully framed in deep blue frame with an ornate gilt inner section. The frame really enhances the piece and brings out the rich colours in the painting. Both frame and painting are in excellent vintage condition.

  • Pears

    Sold

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A brilliantly executed  mid century still life in oil, painted by the established artist Eric Cederberg.

    Thick swirls of creamy paint form the background of the top half of the composition, and then below this we have a darker brown area with outlines in thick strokes that mimic the appearance of wood grain. Contrasted against this earthy palette are three bright and vivid pears, still connected to their branches and their ochre leaves. There is a beautiful balance to the horizontal composition, which Cederberg is known to be adept at achieving.

    Cederberg was a Swedish artist who made his debut on the art world in Helsingborg in 1922.  Later he participated in the  Skåne Art Association Exhibition in 1926 and the  Swedish Public Art Society exhibition in Stockholm in 1941. He is represented in several public collections in Sweden.

    This painting is housed in an absolutely gorgeous champagne frame with a wide profile. The painting has some scattered craquelure but is stable overall and is in good condition otherwise. The frame is in good vintage condition.

  • Village Walk

    £380

    Available

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A striking mid century street scene, painted in oil onto canvas.

    Executed in an expressionist style, the artist has used broad and expressive brushstrokes in an array of earthy colours to create this composition. Subtle tonal variations and a skilful use of complementary colours create a sense of depth as well as light and shadow. A group of figures can be seen in the foreground, and behind them sit several light coloured houses. At the top of the composition we see the rolling hills in deeper darker colours.

    The painting is housed in a wood frame with an outer dark border which complements the painting beautifully. Both painting and frame are in very good vintage condition.

  • Gentil

    £480

    Available

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A soothing mid century lake landscape in oil, painted onto canvas.

    Soft pastel colours have been applied in an expressive manner, creating a composition of a calming lake scene. There is almost a watercolour-like effect, where the artist has managed to very skilfully capture the reflective nature of the water. The artist has also captured the effect of light and movement in the landscape, giving us the sense that he has painted the picture ‘en plein air’ (the practice of painting a picture outdoors).

    The painting is housed in a simple wood frame which complements it beautifully. Both painting and frame are in excellent vintage condition.

  • Vista

    £380

    Sold

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A panoramic mid century landscape, painted in oil onto canvas.

    This long and very restful landscape features short and expressive brushstrokes in an array of soft colours. A row of white stepping leads our eyes leftwards and upwards along the bottom edge of the composition, reaching the area of sloping layered greens. This then takes our view back downwards towards what appears to be a pond or lake on the right side of the composition.

    This painting has a very soothing effect and would suit a bedroom or above-the-bed wall perfectly.

    The painting is housed in a beautiful gilt frame. Both painting and frame are in excellent vintage condition.

  • Abstract Still Life

    £450

    Available

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A large and striking mid century modernist semi abstract still life in oil, painted in 1955.

    Large and gestural sweeping brushstrokes contrast against thin, angular outlines in black. 2 bottles in the middle ground are discernible, alluding to the fact that the scene pictured before us is a still life of objects on a table. The artist employs some cubist elements too, flattening out the scene and incorporating multiple views to create this abstracted and fragmented scene.

    The painting is housed in a painted wood frame, with visible grain. Both painting and frame are in good vintage condition.

  • Mauve

    £335

    Available

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A small but compelling mid century abstract, painted in oil onto board.

    There is a very satisfying sense of movement and rhythm within the composition, created through sweeping gestural brushstrokes. Areas of impasto (where the paint is applied thickly and so stands proud from the surface) give the painting its texture and depth. The painting is reminiscent of vigorous waves of an ocean, or of a mountain landscape with wind and snow. Either way,  there is a palpable feeling of nature and its forces.

    The painting is housed in its original mid century frame with a dark wood inner window, and a gilt outer border. Both painting and frame are in good vintage condition.

  • Sunset View

    £355

    Available

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A nostalgic mid century landscape in oil, painted onto canvas.

    A row of small houses sit atop mountains looking over the landscape. A tree punctuates the middle of the foreground, giving our eyes a focal point. To the left of the composition we see cyprus trees standing tall, and as we move further into the back of the composition, a row of mountains sit underneath the sunset sky. The artist has captured a moment where it is not long before the light is lost and night begins. The sun sits just below the horizon, and this time of twilight casts a purple tinge onto the landscape.

    This scene exudes a feeling of nostalgia and tenderness, while being really calm and restful.

    This oil on canvas is housed in its original mid-century wood frame with an inner silver window that makes the painting stand out. The painting is in excellent vintage condition.  The window on the frame has areas of general wear and paint loss, commensurate with age.

  • Mountain Trail

    £395

    Available

    SOLD.

    A brilliantly executed and emotive modernist style oil painting, presenting a mountainous landscape with trees.

    Executed in a semi-abstract manner, the artist has simplified forms down to blocks of distinct colours and expressive brushstrokes.

    A playful selection of rich and lively colours harmonise wonderfully to form this panoramic landscape view, and the use of contrasting shades demonstrate depth and width to the painting.

    This oil on canvas is housed in a characterful light wood frame with an inner silver window that illuminates the painting. There are minor areas of paint loss to the painting and light scuffs to the frame. Nevertheless, this does not detract from its overall attractiveness and the work is good vintage condition.

  • Trees by Blue

    £350

    Available

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A large, expressive and textured winter landscape composition, painted in oil onto canvas.

    Confident, gestural brushstrokes fill the majority of the picture, giving the painting a wonderful sense of depth and complexity. The white layers over the tonal gradations of blue give the painting a luminosity – conveying the sense that certain areas of the snow are reflecting light from the sun above. To the right in the distance we see a set of farm houses, and to the left the picture is punctuated by 3 trees, painted in boldly.

    The painting is housed in a mid century wood frame. The painting has some craquelure present to the left side, but the paint layer is stable overall. The frame has some age toning and general wear commensurate with age, and is also stable.

  • Girl with Pots

    £355

    Available

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A striking and vibrant mid century semi-abstract composition, painted in oil onto canvas.

    A myriad of patterns and colours have been applied to the canvas, creating a wonderful scene of a seated lady surrounded by pots and plants. To the top left we see the suggestion of trees, and then to the middle ground a range of leafy plants around the seated figure. The scene is punctuated by a large bowl, covered in a colourful pattern. The artist skilfully uses colour and shape to its full potential, combining a mix of both fluid expressive brushstrokes with more controlled, restrained angled shapes. The composition is such an expression of liveliness and playfulness, with all the individual elements bouncing off one another and yet harmonising wonderfully.

    This oil on canvas is housed in white wood frame with an inner silver window that pairs perfectly with the painting. Both painting and frame are in excellent vintage condition.

  • Still life in Colour

    £425

    Available

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A striking mid century modernist still life, painted in oil onto board.

    A myriad of colours, shapes, forms and lines has been used in this composition. The artist purposefully draws our attention to the fluidity of the objects and the background, using rounded and curved lines for all the individual elements, which are set against a rainbow-like band of colours. There is a distinct playfulness to this picture, in terms of subject, colour as well as shadow and light.

    This oil on board is housed a beautiful wood frame with double grey windows. Both painting and frame are in excellent vintage condition.

  • Blue Landscape

    £425

    Available

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore..

    An expressive and uniquely textured modernist style landscape composition, rendered in oil on canvas.

    The artist has used a restrained palette of blues of greens to execute this scenic view depicting a hilly landscape surrounded by trees.

    An aggregate has been added to the surface – which wonderfully simulates the granular nature of sand, creating an almost three dimensional and sculptural effect to the painting.

    This oil on canvas is housed in a complementary cream wood frame. Both painting and frame are in excellent vintage condition

  • Beneath

    £515

    Available

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore..

    A wonderfully textured and expressive mid century abstract painting, executed in oil onto canvas.

    This painting is visually calming in appearance, as it is composed with a colour palette comprising various shades of grey as well as underlying darker shades of blue, black and brown.

    The artist has skilfully used the impasto technique – applying thick layers of paint to provide a textural dimension to the artwork. This thick accumulation of paint that lends a three-dimensional quality not only adds character to the piece, but a sense of dynamism too.

    This oil on canvas is housed in a complementary grey frame with a silver lining, that pairs perfectly with the colours of painting. There are some light scattered areas of craquelure and paint loss across the artwork, commensurate with its age.

    A striking mid century black & white modernist portrait painting, executed in oil onto canvas.

    The artist has used a monochromatic colour scheme, displaying an outstanding play of shadow of light to produce this overall very well-balanced painting.

  • Gather

    £535

    Available

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A brilliantly executed and elegant mid century painting by Swedish artist Ivar Morsing, executed in oil onto board.

    Painted in a semi-abstract manner, the artist has left out realistic details as he depicts a group of figures gathering together.

    Gentle yet expressive brushwork with precise strokes and a subtle blending of a rich palette comprising shades of yellow, white and brown fill the canvas.

    The artist has very skilfully imbued the painting with a luminosity, which is further enhanced by the gilt frame that surrounds it.

    This oil on board is housed in a beautiful gilt frame with an inner linen lining and gilt window.  Both painting and frame are in excellent vintage condition.

  • The Dancer

    £410

    Available

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A distinctly modernist oil portrait of an African female figure in tribal dress, painted in 1959.

    Deep and rich planes of colours fill the canvas, with angular forms and distinct lines building up into a semi abstract portrait. We see the figure in side profile, arms and legs in the midst of movement.  The artist teases our eye – we are unable to discern where her dress and legs end, and where the background begins. Angled planes of white surrounding the figure illuminate her  upper body, skilfully narrowing our eyes towards the main figure, before then dispersing as the body and background become indistinguishable.

    The surface of the painting has also been coated with a layer of varnish. This gives it a layer of shine, enhancing its aesthetic appeal whilst acting as a layer of protection to the artwork. Do not that some glare is present in the photographs.

    This oil on board is housed in a wood frame that pairs perfectly with the painting. There are areas of light craquelure across the painting commensurate with its age, but is in good vintage condition overall.

    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.

    A well-executed and calming autumnal landscape of a lakeside set against a beautiful blue sky.

    With the use of short and soft brushstrokes, one is captivated by the strong sense of serenity and air of stillness evoked in this piece.

    The artist has selected a vibrant colour palette, and has wonderfully captured the the reflection of foliage cast on the water’s surface.

    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.

    Houses at Sunset

    £250

    Available

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A stunning mid century modernist oil landscape painting depicting rows of houses at sunset.

    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.

    The artist has executed this artwork so confidently with powerful and visible brushstrokes, and the textured layers of paint create a sense of three dimensionality to the piece.

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

    This oil on canvas is housed in a complementary thin white wooden frame. Both artwork and frame are in excellent vintage condition.
