  • Blue Waters

    Sold

    SOLD

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A really gorgeous seascape featuring cerulean blue waters flanked by a pink cliff face. Several boats of different kinds sit on the water, forming a very visually pleasing composition and creating a sense of depth within the picture. A pastel and more mellow palette has been used for the boats, pier and cliff face, therefore drawing our initial attention and focus to the striking blue of the water. As we then allow our eyes  to survey the rest of the picture, details on the boats and surrounding seascape then begin to reveal themselves.

    The oil painting, (dated 1942) is housed in its original gilt and black frame, with an inner linen-lined slip. Both frame and paintings are in very good vintage condition.

    Size: 46 x 54cm (including frame)

  • The Muse

    Sold

    SOLD

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A really unique semi-abstract painting in oil of a muse posing for an artist. In this piece emphasis has been placed on lines and forms as opposed to realistic details. For example, a triangular plane of saturated yellow has been used to represent the light streaming from the lamp shade above the head of the artist. But this plane of yellow is also what creates perspective and depth in this picture, establishing the space between the artist and the muse. Rich colours of green, yellow and gold give this painting a resplendence, emphasised further by the gilt frame surrounding the painting.

    Both painting and gilt frame are in excellent condition.

    Size: 43.5 x 31cm (including frame)

  • Sail

    Sold

    SOLD

    Free domestic (UK) shipping. As this painting is very large, it is unlikely that we will be able to ship it internationally. If you are very interested and are located outside of the UK, contact us and we will see what we can do.

    A magnificent work of art presenting a row of houses lined by an ocean front with docked sailboats in sight.

    This coastal scape draws on a range of modernist concepts and influences including cubism, abstraction, and fauvism; and as we spend time to study its colours, forms and play on geometric shapes, there is more than meets the eye.

    Blocks of contrasting bold colours have been use to give rise to the various forms, and the artist has wonderfully managed to capture reflections in the water through the use of short and swift brushstrokes.

    The work comes presented in a wood frame with a linen lining, and is in good vintage condition.

    Size: 69 x 95 cm (including frame)

  • Tender Moments

    Sold

    SOLD

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A thoroughly well-executed mid 20th century painting dated 1954. The artwork depicts two elderly women sitting beside each other on a bench. There is an air of nostalgia, and they appear to be deep in conversation, reminiscing about their life experiences.

    The artist has used a lovely neutral palette of grey, beige, green and blue that harmonises very well together. The use of very short and soft brushstrokes pair excellently with the subdued tones.

    The painting is in excellent vintage condition.

    Size:  47 x 50cm (including frame)

  • Staying In

    Sold

    SOLD

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A restful depiction in oil of a young lady perched on a balcony edge, flanked by columns on either side. She has a book in her hand, but appears to be looking towards us. There is an air of peacefulness around her – the warm rays of the sun spread gently from behind, finding their way through the soft leaves of the trees behind, lighting up the pages of her book. A vase of pink flowers sit on the balcony on the other side, providing a sense of balance to the composition of this picture and add a wonderful pop of colour.

    The painting is framed beautifully in a lilac frame, picking up on the colours of the columns.

    Both painting and frame are in excellent condition.

    Size: 50 x 44cm (including frame)

  • Blue II

    Sold

    SOLD

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A wonderful figure study of seated nude in watercolour and ink detailing. Hues of blue bleed into the paper, and the sanguine outline adds a a wonderful rust coloured contrast to the blue wash. It would definitely make quite a statement in any interior.

    The painting is housed in a double grey card mount and an oak frame.

    Size:  52.5 x 45 cm (including frame)

  • Soar

    Sold

    SOLD

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A delicate oil on canvas depicting an eagle soaring in the sky, gliding through wheat fields with such poise.

    This composition is highly well-balanced, with the area of the sky and the land having equal visual weight.

    Although this bird of prey possesses impressive strength, and is known as one of the most powerful birds on the planet, the artist has chosen to capture its soft side – as there is so much lightness and grace is this composition. The use of fine and smooth brushstrokes imbue the work with a feel of gentleness; and the warm pastel colour palette create feelings of earthiness and calmness.

    The artwork comes with a light wood frame with a gilt inner window, which pairs extremely well with the painting, enhancing it further. Painting and frame are in excellent vintage condition.

    Size: 52.5 x 60.5 cm (including frame)

  • St Germain

    Sold

    SOLD

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    Saint-Germain-des-Prés, the 6th Arrondissement of Paris, is best known for the literary and artistic celebrities who lived and worked here in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. It was the meeting point for existentialists, painters, and writers. This vibrant painting of the quarter accurately conveys its youthful energy and atmosphere.

    The oil painting is in good vintage condition, including some typical signs of ageing to the linen lining on the frame.

    Painting size: 21 x 25.5 cm

    Overall size: 30 x 34.5 cm (including frame)

    Note: The photos used are not meant to be an accurate size representation of the artwork. Please check dimensions before purchasing.

    Miniature paintings are often overlooked treasures. Their small size means they can fit into an array of small spaces, adding interest to nooks and crannies. They can be displayed on a bookshelf or kitchen shelf, either standing on a mini easel or leant against other objects/books. If added to a group display, these small pieces act as a wonderful contrast to bigger pieces, and can add ‘punctuation’ to the group hang.

  • Lazy Sunday

    Sold

    SOLD

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    This stunning oil painted in an impressionist style is reminiscent of works by Monet and Auguste Renoir. In this charming and pleasurable scene of a lady with her parasol drifting down the river in a long boat, we see brushwork that is rapid and broken into separate dabs in order to render the fleeting quality of light.

    The painting is housed in an ornately moulded vintage gilt frame, and is in excellent vintage condition.

    Size: 40.5 x 56cm (including frame)

  • The Dresser

    Sold

    SOLD

    Free domestic (UK) shipping. As this painting is very large, it is unlikely that we will be able to ship it internationally. If you are very interested and are located outside of the UK, contact us and we will see what we can do.

    A fantastic still life oil painted in the impressionist style. Here the artist has rendered rich and intense colours,  seeking oppositions of blue with orange, red and green, yellow and violet. Also evident is the artist’s use of the impressionist skill of the spontaneous brushstroke, each brush mark visible and distinct. Contrasting colours combined with multi directional strokes convey a sense of light and movement. There is a certain warmth and homeliness to this painting.

    The painting is housed in a robust frame, and is in good vintage condition. There are some areas of craquelure (fine cracks in the paint) as seen in the photos, but the paint layer is stable overall. Cracks forming within the paint layer is natural as the paint starts to age. Craquelure is not in itself harmful to the painting, and can add to the ‘quality’ of patina that only age can bring.

    Size: 68 x 80 cm (including frame)

    A large and expressive modernist still life painting signed by Swedish artist A Nilsson.

    The work is well executed with short and swift brushstrokes, and painted with great confidence.

    Presenting a tray holding some fruits, glasses and a pitcher, we love the cool blue undertones in the work, and how the artist has highlighted the reflections and shadowy effects of the objects in blue as well, imbuing the work with so much character.

    This painting is in excellent vintage condition.

    It comes with a unique wood frame laid weaving and  a linen lining. Do note that the weaving on the frame has some fraying and losses

  • Sunshine

    Sold

    SOLD

    Free shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    This gorgeous array of freshly picked calendulas and chrysanthemums will most definitely add a touch of elegance to any interior space. The vibrant yellow flowers stand out beautifully against the darker grey -blue background, and the artist’s brushstrokes and areas of thicker impasto add texture and interest.

    We reframed this painting recently in this beautifully elegant champagne wood frame which adds structure and brightens the painting.

    Size: 40.5 x 51 cm (including frame)

  • Three

    Sold

    SOLD

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    Painted in 1973, this quintessentially modernist painting depicts three female figures seated by the sea. The figures are almost sculptural in form, their soft curves enhanced by the contrasting hard edges of the ledge they sit on and the  horizon beyond.

    The painted surface has scattered areas of small losses, and there is general surface wear and marks to the panel edges. The artwork is painted in oil, and the board upon which it is painted has been set within a thick wooden panel which can be hung on its own as is.

    Size: 25.5 x 51 cm (including outer panel)

  • The Bathers

    Sold

    SOLD

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    An expressionist scene of 2 female bathers against a watery landscape. The figures have their backs to the viewer, and we are only able to able to catch sight of the side profiles.

    Bathers in art have been a long-standing tradition since the Renaissance, and this artwork in particular is reminiscent of the bathing scenes from Paul Cezanne.

    The forms of the two nudes are bold and well emphasised, as their silhouettes have been outlined by thick black lines .The artist has used quick and short brushstrokes, as well as heavy impasto to create a sense of three dimensionality in this work. The orderly blocks of blue in differing shades in the background helps create the illusion of depth in this painting.

    The painting is surrounded by a fantastic and robust original ash and green frame.

    It is in excellent vintage condition.

    Size: 77 x 62 cm (including frame)

  • The Swans

    Sold

    A wonderful study of 2 white swans grazing in a lush garden, set against a historical building.

    On this fine morning in Spring, a graceful pair of swans have just emerged from the nearby lake, and have come to the lawn to nibble on grass. With no one else in sight, they are roaming freely in the area, with not a worry in the world.

    The artist has selected a beautiful naturalistic and earthy colour palette in this work; and has creatively dabbed a mix of clay, beige and sand colours to render the rough and granular nature of stone on the historical building.

    He has also painted the grass in a similar fashion – using different shades of green and some hints of beige to highlight its dense appearance.

    This mid 20th century painting is an oil on canvas, and is signed on the lower right.

    It is complemented by its gilt frame, and measures 73.5 x 62.5 cm (including frame)

  • En Hiver

    Sold

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A somber work of art presenting a coastal scape on a cold winters day, painted in 1969.

    Sailboats are docked in this lake, and stretches of ice forming on the surface can be seen. In the background, trees with bare branches are lined by rows of houses, and the cold sky is painted in a beautiful misty blue.

    The artist has used a restrained palette comprising of shades of grey, white and blue; and together with soft and light brushstrokes, it evokes an overall sense of visual calm and stillness in the painting.

    The work is in excellent vintage condition, and comes with a unique wood frame that’s laid with a woven material, and that has a black outer section.

    Size: 60 x 52 cm (including frame)

  • Morning Flight

    Sold

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A absolutely stunning oil painting of birds in flight across a coastal landscape. The artist has managed to capture the crispness of an early winter morning, with a purple hue enveloping the landscape. The glowing rays of the sun have begun to warm up the sky, its rays reflecting off the water’s surface. The addition of the pair of birds mid-flight completes the composition of this oil perfectly.

  • Ashore

    Sold

    SOLD

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    This excellent semi-abstract modernist oil painting is rather unique. The colour palette is almost monochrome upon first glance, and would perfectly suit an interior with a modern décor. As we take the time to study the painting however, several other colours come to light, including purples, browns, blues, and greens. The artist has played with geometric shapes – using flat planes of colour to create a sense of depth and three dimensionality.

    The painting is housed in its original silver and black painted wood frame. It is in good vintage condition, with some scuffs to the frame and small areas of surface losses to the painting (as shown in photos).

    Size: 52 x 60cm (including frame)

  • Flourish

    Sold

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    An excellent mid 20th century still life that is so vibrant. Placed atop a table is a pot of white flowers in full bloom surrounded by other objects, and a curtain in a striking blue is hanging from behind.

    Fast and swift brushstrokes dominate the painting, as its rendered in an impressionist style; and the colour palette of the work bears such elegance with its blues and whites and the silver of the frame.

    This painting on board is in excellent vintage condition.

    It comes with a complementary silver painted distressed frame, but do note that the board is slightly loose within the frame.

    Size: 52.5 x 44.5 cm (including frame)

  • Buddies

    Sold

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A fun and playful painting of four penguins, painted in a modernist geometric style. Blocks of vibrant colour and shapes are used in to create this semi abstract picture of penguins in a row. A mix of media has been used, including oil, watercolour and gouache.

    The painting is presented in a wood and gilt frame, and is behind glass. Do take note that some areas of reflection and glare have been captured in the photographs and are not part of the painting, which is in good vintage condition.

    Size: 51 x 31cm (including frame)

  • Tea Time

    Sold

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A simply calm and charming still life.

    Laid out on a tabletop is a yellow earthen clay water jug, a copper kettle, a glass water bottle, 3 fruits, a slice of bread, and a teacup filled with tea and placed on a saucer.

    Fine and detailed brushstrokes have been used to paint the objects so meticulously; and despite being laid out so smoothly on the canvas, one is still able to get a sense of the roundness and three dimensionality of the objects.

    The objects are placed against a monochrome grey background that further enhances their colours, allowing it to stand out more.

    The painting is housed in a robust frame, and is in excellent vintage condition. There are scattered areas of paint loss to the edges of the frame, but the uniformity of the losses have made us think this could be intentional, giving the frame that vintage ‘distressed’ effect.

    Size: 52 x 60 cm (including frame)

  • Carmine

    Sold

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A richly coloured, striking oil painting of red blooms (possibly Lilies or Amaryllis – let us know if you know which!) in a glass vase. The combination of ultramarine blue of the fabric, the carmine red of the flowers and the emerald green of the stems and leaves create a striking picture. Areas of impasto (where the thick paint stands proud on the surface) add wonderful texture to this painting.

    The painting is housed in a lovely nude wood frame. Both painting and frame are in excellent vintage condition.

    Size: 49.5 x 41.5cm (including frame)

  • The Tabletop Party

    Sold

    SOLD

    An expressive still life depicting 2 pears, a wooden spatula, and a Delft blue plate laid out on a tabletop.

    The artist has skilfully captured the three-dimensionality of the objects through the use of bold and distinct brushstrokes using the impasto technique.

    The overflowing use of colours as well as texture imbues this little painting with so much character and vigour – that it makes the objects come to live, and seem as if they are having a blast at their own little party together.

    The painting is housed in a new box frame that is painted white.

    Size: 27 x 30cm (including frame)

  • Balance

    Sold

    SOLD

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    An excellent composition of a nude study in gouache, depicting a female figure perched on a stool. There is a palpable tension within this picture. With her legs raised, the muse grips the rear legs of the stool, balancing her slender figure on the equally slender wooden stool.  The simplicity of this picture is very effective – clean lines and a limited colour palette lend themselves well  to this very visually pleasing composition.

    Recently framed in a very complementary oak and maple frame with a white card mount, this gouache on paper is in excellent condition.

    Size: 61 x 46.5 cm (including frame)

    A very large and very vibrant oil that would definitely make for an eye-catching feature piece in any interior. The artist has explored the use of colour to its full effect, using bold and rhythmic brushstrokes that set your eyes dancing. Strong outlines and saturated colour in oil form wonderful patterns, reminiscent of the fauvist works by artists such as Henri Matisse.

    The subject matter too is thoroughly heart warming – a family of 3 walk to the end of a path, taking in the view of the open sea through a gap in the luscious trees, as the surrounding landscape wraps them in a colourful and playful embrace.

    This original mid century oil painting is by artist Hans Öllgard (1911-1969) and is housed in robust gilt frame. An engraved metal plate carrying the artist’s name and dates is affixed to the frame.

    The painting is in excellent vintage condition, with only very minor scuffs to the frame.

  • Le Cheval

    Sold

    SOLD

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A lovely delicate miniature study of a horse painted in 1917. The overall beige and cream tones in this miniature watercolour, as well as the use of fine and soft brushstrokes lend much lightness to the overall tone.

    It is well presented within a mount and a wonderful wooden frame with a wide profile and visible grain. With its multiple ‘windows’, this frame adds volume and focus to the painting, and pairs perfectly with it.

    This framed miniature is in very good vintage condition. There is very slight crevice along the lower section of the frame that is visible only upon close inspection. The structure of the wood frame remains very stable.

    This mid 20th century painting is in excellent vintage condition.

    Size: 49 x 59cm (including frame)

  • The Street Fair

    Sold

    This enchanting scene of a street fair is such a whimsical piece of art.

    It’s a lovely day in Spring and the fair has just started. The street is lined with stalls selling an abundance of food, games and handicraft, as the crowd is slowly streaming in, and there is even a dog who wants to join the party.

    This work brings back such delightful memories of visiting a carnival with friends or family, having so much fun, and always returning home with something new.

    This oil on panel is done by Gerhard Karlmark (1905-1976), who works are displayed in museums across Sweden.

    It is signed on the lower right, and is complemented by its gilt frame.

  • Heaven

    Sold

    SOLD

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    This idyllic oil painting of a pastoral landscape is the epitome of tranquillity and calm. A group of birds soar overhead , leading our eyes over the expanse of warm yellow fields towards the silhouettes of trees and cottages, and then further into the mountains beyond. The composition is very well balanced, with the sky and land taking up equal proportions, adding to the sense of harmony and expansiveness within the picture. A tractor is seen in the foreground – its purple colouring contrasting wonderfully with the warmer hues of the yellow field.

    This painting, while delicate and tender, manages to capture both the beauty and vastness of the surrounding landscape. Housed in a gilt frame, it measures 40.5 x 48.5cm and is in very good vintage condition with only some light scuffing to the frame.
