    Darker moody shades that have been used to depict the landscape contrast starkly against lighter shades of the sky – adding a dramatic effect to the painting.

  • Prep

    £500

    Available

    Free shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A small but very interesting composition of two figures in an interior, painted in oil onto board.

    We have not been able to quite put a finger on what the two figures are doing – they look like they could be drying out something, given the firewood in the picture, or perhaps they are weaving with a loom in front of the seated figure. A large bag of logs sits to the right of the picture, a pair of barrels can be seen to the left, and wooden beams run across the roof. The picture has a lovely homely feel, with an earthy palette of browns and greens. There is an array of detail, which makes it very interesting puzzle to try and work out. If anyone has a clear idea of what the scene is of, we’d be very grateful if you could drop us a message letting us know what you think it is and why!

    The painting is housed in a gilt frame which illuminates the picture wonderfully. Both painting and frame are in good vintage condition.

To the left of the composition we see a ship docked, and figures underneath the crane.

He has used blocks of colours and bold outlines to create the forms and shapes within the picture that give the picture its depth. We get a sense that it is early morning by the harbourside, before the fog has lifted.

    Misty Window

    £255

    Available

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

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.
