  • 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.

    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 have abstract planes of strong colour, intensified by chromatic contrasts which cause each saturated hue to reverberate in the eye. 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.

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

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

    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.

    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.

  • Harbourside

    Sold

    -SOLD-
    This stunning harbourside scene with its bold colours and lines would liven up and stand out in any interior space. Our eyes are immediately drawn to the painterly qualities of this piece – the artist has used the characteristics of watercolour to create a wonderfully expressive effect, and the use of the thicker gouache against the tan paper truly brings out the vibrancy of the bolder colours.

  • Table Setting

    Sold

    SOLD

    This bold and eye-catching still life presents a table setting of a flower pot set against oranges and onions.

The artist has skilfully captured the three-dimensionality of the objects through the use of fine and broad brushwork.

  • The Troop

    Sold

    SOLD

    This 20th century oil on canvas presents a still life that is carefully composed and well-balanced.  The artist has used fine brushstrokes to portray a detailed array of tableware on a wooden top. We can detect the use of chiaroscuro, a technique in art that uses the contrast of light and shadow, giving the objects a sense of three-dimensionality and volume.

    The artist has chosen not to hide the age and wear of the objects, and has deliberately chosen to include the staining on the plate and the discolouration on the pitcher in the middle, highlighting the functional and practical use of these objects in everyday life. The silverware stand strong and proud, with a robust and determined manner.

    This painting provides a wonderful parallel to life’s journey – often filled with challenges and hardship, but a reminder that we should always persevere, and make the deliberate choice to to take pride in our scares and embrace it as part of our life story.

    This is painted in acrylic on stretched canvas, and  is in fine vintage condition.
