  • Percolate

    Sold

    Free shipping to Europe, UK and Singapore.

    Through its exploration of lines and generating and defining of shapes such as the curve, circles, angles and arabesque, this painting picks up on the style and ideas of the Movement paintings of British St Ives School artist Sir Terry Frost, who explored concepts around creating rhythm, counterpoint, interruption and repetition.

    A wonderful visual vocabulary of bright primary colours, shapes, and movement transforms what would normally just be a pair of espresso cups and a percolator, and has given them a life of their own.

    The magic in this is that the artist has taken ordinary objects, and has looked at them in a way that has removed all preconceived notions of visual experience in order to open up the possibility of recreating and reimagining that defies reality. There is an openness to serious play with colour and shape. This painting is simple and surprisingly subtle, but very satisfying to look at, and to enjoy.

    This lovely oil on board is in excellent vintage condition. The complementary frame as seen in the photos is included with the painting.

  • The Fisherman’s Wharf

    Sold

    SOLD

    Free shipping to Europe, UK and Singapore.

    A stunning impressionist oil painting capturing a scene of a wharf with fishing boats docked by the river’s edge. It is a fine and quiet day in spring, the air is calm, and a beautiful reflection is cast on the water’s surface.

    This work is a visual pleasure to any viewer, as there is so much harmony – from the balanced colours, forms, lines and texture presented. The transition of the crops and river in the foreground, to the wharf in the middle ground, and lastly to the forest and sky in the background is so well executed, it creates a sense of cohesion and wholeness to the painting.

    Size: 45 x 53 cm (including frame)

    This oil on panel comes in its original vintage wood frame with a linen slip. There is a light surface mark when closely inspected (as seen in photos), but overall it is in very good vintage condition.

  • Dahlias

    Sold

    Free shipping to Europe, UK and Singapore.

    The wonderfully vibrant mid century oil painting of a vase of dahlias would certainly add life to any tired corner or blank wall. The dark blue and brown painted backdrops really makes the pink and purple florals stand out. It has a very well balanced composition which is very pleasing to the eye.

    It is surrounded by a classic gold frame which suits it perfectly. It is in good vintage condition, with minor marks and scuffs typical for a painting of this age.

  • The Cups

    Sold

    Free shipping to Europe, UK and Singapore.

    A wonderful visual vocabulary of bright primary colours, shapes, and movement transforms what would normally just be four drinking vessels, and has given them a life of their own.

  • Off to Market

    Sold

    Free shipping to Europe, UK and Singapore.

    A really unique piece showing off a rich array of warm colours, depicting figures within a vibrant Latin American village. The artist has contrasted areas of small blocks of colour against larger swathes of more expressionistic brushstrokes. These different strokes moving in different directions imbue the painting with a liveliness and playfulness that you don’t often find in paintings. Our eyes are treated to a feast, with lots of detailing to take in and enjoy. We love the fact that the artist has included the little dog passing by, emphasising the fact that this is an everyday scene, part of the hustle and bustle of village life. After noticing the scene that is taking place in the foreground, our eyes are then drawn further into the background where we begin to take in the surrounding landscape, including the village houses and mountains beyond.

    This wonderful oil is is complemented by a very complementary double frame, and both painting and frame are in excellent vintage condition.

  • Belles Fleurs

    Sold

    Why imitate reality when you can imagine a new one?

    Here the most powerful resources of the artist – creativity, imagination and reinvention – have been harnessed. Such a delicate combination has been achieved: the celebration of the common things of everyday life without imitation. Instead, we have ‘visual music’, composed using the formal artistic elements of pattern, harmony, colour, and rhythm.

    We might have in front of us a vase of flowers, a pair of pears, a couple of variegated pebbles and a jug of cherries. But there is more than meets the eye. We have abstract planes of strong colour, intensified by chromatic contrasts which cause each saturated hue to reverberate in the eye. Clear, clean, decorative shapes, schematically flattened into pure geometries: disc and circle, star, scallop-edged roundel, arch and curve, stripes and lines, the intensity of emerald green and ultramarine against pastels and white.

    This ‘no depth’ style might seem simple to achieve, but when examined further, the combination of different elements in fact take great skill. The objects have been deliberately flattened to bring them parallel to the picture surface, deployed on a table top that has been similarly brought up and forward by 90 degrees to align them with the canvas plane. These familiar objects acquire a new life of their own within the composed world of the painting, bounded by the rectangular surface itself and their own pictorial structure of shape and colour.

    Pebbles, pears, cherries and flowers, yes. But more a world of imagination than actual fact.

    This meticulous and vivacious oil on board is in excellent vintage condition. The white complementary frame as seen in the photos is included with the painting.

Such a delicate combination has been achieved: the celebration of the common things of everyday life without imitation. Instead, we have ‘visual music’, composed using the formal artistic elements of pattern, harmony, colour, and rhythm.

    In the foreground of this enchanting artwork, we see 2 red poppies in a vase, situated around a jug, an onion and 3 stones. What is captivating is the tribal patterns on the objects, and the striking colour palette comprising of black, white and purple being used.

    With these objects dominating the artwork, what can be quite missable to the eye is the unique location where this scene is taking place – the desert! In the background, the sun is glowing in the clear blue sky, watching over the vast land and sand dunes beneath it.

    This charming oil on board is in excellent vintage condition, and comes in a beautifully carved wooden frame.

  • The Conversation

    Sold

    Free shipping to Europe, UK and Singapore.

    This artwork captivated our hearts with its unique and interesting subject matter. Depicting a home setting that is well decorated with objects such as artworks and a grandfather clock hanging on the wall, one is immediately drawn to the male figures presented together in the middle.

    This group of 5 elderly gentlemen, appear to be long time friends and are engaged in a lively conversation. This artwork is certainly very inviting and as a viewer, one’s curiosity is piqued by the possible subject of the conversation taking place.

    The strong use of bold and distinct brushstrokes in this painting is immaculate as it gives rise to the various forms in the work. Another great beauty point is the sunlight streaming in from the open window, as it lights up the room, casting shadows and light on the flooring as well.

    This oil on canvas comes with a brown wooden frame with black accents, complementing the artwork beautifully.

    Size: 56 x 64 cm (including frame)

  • Fields of Yellow

    Sold

    A striking and picturesque impressionist landscape scene of a field of rapeseed on a fine Spring day. The crops are presented in full bloom, and ready for harvest. Soft and sweeping brushstrokes capture the momentary effects of sunlight shining its rays down on the flowers, and the vibrant shades of yellow contrasted with the darker greens and browns create a wonderful striking effect.

    This oil on board comes framed, and is in excellent vintage condition.

  • At Rest

    Sold

    SOLD

    Free shipping to Europe, UK and Singapore.

    It is mid afternoon, the house is quiet, and the kitchen is in repose. The cook takes a moment to rest her tired legs and aching back. She knows it won’t be long before the afternoon passes and dinner preparations for the family need to get going.

    Many of us can relate to this simple scene of taking a moment to pause, and feeling the relief of having some time to breathe, before the hustle has to begin again.

    This wonderful Swedish painting with its stunning brushwork and pastel palette embodies such a lovely narrative.

    It is in excellent vintage condition, and comes in its original and very complementary frame.

  • Fleur Blanche

    Sold

    Free shipping to Europe, UK and Singapore.

    Imagine a friend has brought you a bunch of flowers and you’ve put them in a jug displayed on your dining room table. You’re having breakfast at your table the next morning, admiring the flowers. You observe the patterns, colours, edges and lines of the little flowers. You begin to notice the natural rhythm within this visual picture – the different heights and shapes of the flowers and leaves and their stems form a sweet harmonious composition.

    It is this very composition that the artist of this painting has explored. The artist has observed the formal elements of the jug of flowers, i.e. shape, line, form and colour, and has enhanced them by deliberately flattening and bringing them parallel to the picture surface, deployed on a table top that has been similarly brought up and forward by 90 degrees to align them with the canvas plane.

    Here we have art that accepts life’s visual and tactile pleasures, but represents them using the resources of the painter – colour and form, visual rhythm and rhyme.

    This lovely oil on board is in excellent vintage condition. The complementary vintage effect frame as seen in the photos is included with the painting.

  • Autumn Village | Village de Moselle

    Sold

    SOLD

    This artwork is so unique as it is painted on not one, but two sides!

    On one front, a cheerful autumnal landscape scene that is painted in a fauvist manner is presented. One is captivated by the striking use of strong vivid colours, and the use of bold and distinctive brushwork that certainly enhances the work’s emotional power.

    On the other reverse, a stunning 1950s modernist painting of a French Village is presented. Using a wonderfully unique colour palette, it instills the pictured French village with so much life and character. The artist has chosen not to paint any figures in this picture, but the buildings have been painted in such an expressive, vibrant and textured manner that they almost double as people – the bold outlines and different coloured facades give each structure its own personality. Even the fencing in the forefront has been given close attention by the artist. The bold and gestural brushstrokes in the forefront of the painting contrast elegantly with the lighter and more muted palette of the sky.

    There is so much to look at and notice in the entirety of this artwork – a delightful array of colours, textures and structures on both sides.

    This 1950s oil on board is in good vintage condition for its age, and is well presented in wooden frame. The front is exposed, and the back has a UV-protected glass cover – and you can choose to display either side.

  • Summer Pasture

    Sold

    A small, stunning and very well balanced oil on board. We see cows resting under a tree in pasture, keeping themselves cool and shaded from the summer heat. The mix of contrasting green tones against the blue sky add depth to the picture. The two large trees are punctuated by the string of resting cows on the left, adding a wonderful sense of balance and harmony to the picture. The combination of the cows in repose, the rich green brushwork and the blue skies really lend a sense of tranquillity and calm to this small but confident picture.

    This oil on board is in excellent vintage condition.

  • The Clan

    Sold

    ‘-SOLD-

    This quotidien scene of simple objects is arranged as a still life of copper, bronze and silver vessels. There is no frippery to this picture, no gesture overplayed.

    Yet the physical solidarity and surety of the objects contrast starkly with the negative space and void beyond – the table and background seem to merge into an abstract hollow. This invites us to open our minds to wider meanings, and offers us the chance to think freely and more metaphorically.

    As opposed to just static receptacles, we could imagine this grouping as a family – perhaps as three siblings in a row. The two elder siblings perched on either end, standing tall and playing by the rules, while the youngest sibling in the middle, creative and seeking attention, playfully falls over, breaking the formal composition of the picture. Yet somehow the trio remain harmonious despite the disruption.

    As objects, they share similarities in their matter and purpose, but are still able to hold their own. Much like siblings, they are bonded by connections and similarities, but remain unique individuals with idiosyncratic characteristics worth discovering.

  • Summer Skies

    Sold

    ‘-SOLD-

    Despite its small size, this painting does not seem to be at all constrained by its borders. An expansive and panoramic view beckons us, and tiny details within the pastoral landscape invite us in to take a closer look. The artist has used swift and sweeping strokes of colour to paint the atmospheric sky, while maintaining a more restrained hand when painting the finer details of the tree-lined fields and sheep below.

    This beautiful composition is imbued with a sense of peace and tranquillity, while still conveying a sense of the passing of time. Its cool palette, well laid out composition and compact size make it a stunning yet practical addition to both classic and modern interiors.

    Size: 24 x 29cm (including frame)

  • The Holiday

    Sold

    SOLD

    This piece is most certainly one of our favourites. Delicately painted in creamy pastel tones, this textured piece is a holiday on canvas. Capturing a quiet back street in Continental Europe, the loose and painterly handling of the artist’s brush echoes the shifting colours and patterns of French Impressionism. A perfect mnemonic for a previous European vacation, or better still, a prompt to make the journey once again.

    Size: 46.5 x 36.5cm (including frame)

    In excellent vintage condition.

  • The Teaparty

    Sold

    SOLD

    This wonderful and delightful early 20th Century garden scene depicts three ladies taking tea outside. The artist has composed the scene in the impressionist manner, reminiscent of the famous garden party works by Pierre-Auguste Renoir. The ladies perch on garden chairs, while one rests against a tree, drinking tea from a small table.

    Subtle dappled sunlight from the tree canopy above aids the picturesque, calm qualities of the setting, and the overall composition has a distinct and purposeful elegance.

    Painted in oil on canvas which has been laid down to board, this painting is in fine vintage condition with a very minor surface mark to the lower left corner.

    Size: 40.7 x 50.3cm

  • Peach Blossom

    Sold

    A blue vase filled with lush pink peach blossoms in full bloom is presented on a table top, with light streaming in from the window behind.

  • The Ship

    Sold

    Sold

    ‘-SOLD-

    This lovely and bright early morning scene of a marina is a 20th century gouache and watercolour painting on paper. The artist’s quick and soft brushstrokes give this painting a ‘freshness’ and a lightness which perfectly encapsulates the feeling of being by water – the saltiness in the air, the calming sound of water as it swashes against dry land.

    This stunning harbourside scene with its bold colours and lines would liven up and stand out in any interior space.
