    The serenity of nature is widely celebrated in this artwork, as it presents a landscape scene taken in Österlen – a region in Sweden well known for its natural environment.

    What is striking is the horizontalness in the work – with the vertical plains drawn, almost stacked on one another – giving depth to the work.

    Despite being just a viewer to this painting, the stillness and calmness radiating from the work is so powerful, that one can be easily transported to zen state of mind.

    The painting comes in its original unique frame that suits the painting perfectly. There are minor scuffs to the frame, but this is in line with its age and vintage charm.

  • Morning Light

    Sold

    SOLD

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    Rich creaming colouring, smooth yet confident brushwork, and a well balanced composition all come together in this visual delight. The way in which the artist has applied the coloured oil paints ignite all of our senses, beyond just the visual. We can imagine taking a bite into the fruit, it’s flesh juicy and sweet. The saturated orange and blue of the flowers in the vase tempt us to smell its fragrant aroma, and the terracotta water jug invites us to wrap our hands around it and feel its cool dry surface.

    There’s a freshness and light to this still life that is akin to the atmosphere of a crisp early spring morning. This painting goes beyond a depiction of a group of objects, and instead delights us with an unexpected sensory experience.

    Painted by Swedish artist Elsa Hansson Winnberg (1913-1987), it is housed in a very complementary gilt frame with hints of red, and is in excellent vintage condition.

  • By the Boardwalk

    Sold

    SOLD

    This charming artwork of a boardwalk set against a river by a coastal town brings so much lightness and serenity to one’s heart.

    It is a cloudy day, and thick clouds have filled the light blue sky. The wind is blowing strongly in the air – causing the lush greenery in the background to sway, and making the water’s surface uneven.

    This gouache painting is uniquely characterised by wonderful blocks of colours as well as broad and textured brushstrokes. Through this, the artist has been able to skilfully produce forms in a somewhat distinct yet abstract manner; and the sweeping motion in which the brushworks have been applied breathe so much life and vigour to the overall artwork.

    It is housed in white card mount and a blue stained wood frame which picks up on the colours within the painting beautifully. The painting is glazed (there is a layer of perspex between the frame and the painting) to ensure longevity.

    Size: 56 x 48cm (including frame)

  • The Pianist

    Sold

    SOLD

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    This captivating expressionist oil is a fine example of the work by established artist Nathan Gutman. We cannot hear the tune that the pianist plays, but swirls of colour mimic the melody as it dances through the air, treating us to a visual experience in place of what would have been an aural one. Bright colours and dynamic brushstrokes fill the painting with a youthful energy.

    Born in 1914 in Poland and of Jewish descent, Nathan Gutman is a well established artist who exhibited widely throughout his life.

  • The Window

    Sold

    SOLD

    Free shipping to Europe, UK and Singapore.

    There’s something wonderfully cosy and homely about this little painting titled ‘The Window’.

    Perhaps it is the fact that as we look out the window, we see the dark grey clouds beyond and therefore the impending rainfall. But we’re inside, looking out, protected. We’ve collected our wildflowers and now it’s time for a cup of tea and a nice book, while nature outside gets its much needed watering.⁠

  • Pasture

    Sold

    Many of us have fallen into a way of life that suffers from too much intensity, stimulation and distraction. Work is frantic, our email inboxes are clogged, and there is hardly time to reflect on anything.

    This beautifully calm and serene landscape with grazing sheep allows us the chance to resume contact with a more solitary, thoughtful self that otherwise eludes us. It draws out our peaceful side and encapsulates a value of gentleness. The unpretentious simplicity of sheep nestled within a cool autumnal meadow encourages a modest, tender hearted happiness, far away from the stresses of life.

  • Chinoiserie

    Sold

    A beautiful and serene still life that captured our hearts upon first sight.

    Presented atop a mahogany wooden table is an arrangement of flowers in a vase, a sugar pot, and and 2 European vintage ceramic figurines of a boy and girl with animals around them.

    What is so captivating about this work is that it has elements of both East and West – the artist has painted a dutch Delft blue and white chinoiserie porcelain vase that has some yellow overtones that further enhances its beauty.

    The objects are set against a beautifully painted backdrop that picks up the colours of the flowers and the ornaments around it.

    Very fine and soft brushstrokes have been used to create a smooth and delicate effect to the work, and there is great fluency from one subject to the next.

    The artist has also skillfully captured the reflections of the objects cast against the wood grains of the table top.

    Housed in its original frame, this is one of our larger artworks, and measures 88 x 69cm including the frame.

  • The Port

    Sold

    SOLD

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    This bright expressionist oil depicting a harbour scene is wonderfully dynamic. Quick brushstrokes, heavy impasto and a vibrant colour palette lend themselves well to capturing the hustle and bustle of the busy dock at daytime. Surrounding the picture stand tall warehouses that have been built to serve the harbour, smoke bellowing from their chimneys. In the foreground merchants trading their goods scurry along. A white sailing ship with its tall mast is docked in the middle of the picture – its sailor just about to to disembark down the ladder.

    This original oil is by Finish/Swedish artist Kurt Erik Heinonen was born in 1915 and died in 1983. This piece is typical in style and subject for Heinonen, who often used a palette knife with strong clear colouring, mainly painting the west coast region of Sweden with views of fishing harbours with boats.

    The painting is housed in a gorgeous distressed frame wood and cream frame, showing off its wood grain beautifully.

    Free shipping to Europe, UK and Singapore.

    It’s hard to go wrong with a solid Matisse-esque colour palette of blue, yellow and pinkish-red. The blocks of horizontal high contrast colours of blue and marigold in this Swedish painting give it a contemporary charm and sun and sea vibes.

  • Lavender Fields

    Sold

    Free shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A enchanting painting of a picturesque scene  in Provence of lavender fields with mountains in the background. Spring has arrived, and one can almost smell the scent of lavender permeating the air, as the vibrant purple crops are ready for harvest. Four farmers are depicting out in the fields, enjoying their day while they harvest the crops. The buds have formed on the plant, but the flowers have yet to burst into full bloom – as it is the best time to be harvested.

    The painting comes in lovely pastel tones, and the artist has managed to capture the delicate nature of flowers so effortlessly through the use of fine, short brushstrokes.

    This is a mixed media on paper, and the vintage gilded frame with red velvet lining that comes with the artwork adds so much character to it. The painting is glazed (there is a layer of glass between the frame and artwork).

    The artwork and frame are in very good vintage condition, with only some very minor scuffing.

    Size: 39 x 47.5 cm (including frame)

  • Verdant

    Sold

    Free shipping to Europe, UK and Singapore.

    This oil on stretched canvas is excellently executed – blocks of contrasting green in both saturated and pastel shades give it so much life and movement. The brushwork is beautiful and textured, and the composition is very well balanced. The blocks of colour give it a structured feel, but the expressive brushwork imbue it with freedom and movement. The artist has executed the painting with flat planes of colour while still maintaining perspective within the picture – just stunning!

    The painting comes in its original painted wooden frame and suits the painting perfectly. There are minor scuffs to the frame, but this is in line with its age and vintage charm.

    Size: 40 x 52cm (including frame)

  • 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.

    Size: 35 x 30cm (including frame)

  • 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)

  • The Cups

    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 four drinking vessels, 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.

  • 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.

    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.

    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.

    Size: 25.4 x 19.7cm (including 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)
