  • The Marina

    £340

    Available

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A visually pleasing and charming modernist oil painting depicting a scene of a marina with several boats, and a row of huts that lined by the waterfront promenade.

    The artist has used a beautiful restrained palette – selectively choosing similar shades of white, yellow, and brown to paint the huts and boats that seemingly reflective each other.  This not only makes the artwork very well-balanced, but it also creates a sense of depth to the painting.

    Expressive and painterly brushworks have been applied in a swift manner, breathing so much energy and vigour to the overall artwork.

    This oil on canvas is housed in a highly complementary grainy wood frame with an inner gilt and linen lining. Both painting and frame are in excellent vintage condition.

    Size: 49 x 57 cm (including frame)

  • A Melody

    £330

    Available

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A lyrical and emotive mid 20th century still life painting, executed in oil onto canvas. The composition depicts an elegant display of a violin, a musical sheet, 2 fruits and glass objects placed atop a table.

    Large broad diagonal brushstrokes fill the background and foreground of the canvas in an expressive and rhythmic manner –  almost resembling the visual melody of the violin playing, as well as the artist’s passion for music.

    A muted darker pastel palette comprising shades of purple, blue and pink have been used, imbuing the work with both a soft yet dramatic feel that is aligned to its melodic qualities.

    This oil on canvas is in excellent vintage condition. It is housed in a gilt frame with an inner linen lining, that complements the work very well. The frame has slight markings and scuffs, but this is very minor.

  • Plate with Pansies

    £330

    Available

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A pleasant and well-executed mid 20th century still life in oil, depicting a group of objects on a table including a glass of purple flowers, a plate, and apples.

    This painting emphasises the beauty of still life, where a group of everyday objects that are normally ignored are placed centre stage, forcing us to look and notice their shape, form and colour. Here the artist has juxtaposed contrasting colours to create a sense of depth and space. The broad and expressive brushstrokes add an element of tactility to the painting as well. Overall, there is a wonderful luminous and diaphanous quality to the painting.

    The painting is housed in its original mid century frame with a cream coloured linen border. Both painting and frame are in good vintage condition.

    Size: 44 x 53 cm (including frame)

    This painting would pair very well with another still life in our collection. Click here to view.

  • Study of a Standing Nude

    £345

    Available

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A fantastic modernist style portrait, painted in oil and dated 1964.

    A nude figure is depicted standing on a muted pink platform and against a calming blue background. With her gaze slightly turned, she is back-facing the viewer and caught unaware.

    The artist demonstrates a great aptitude for painting the female body, as he skillfully captures the curves and angles of the figure.

    He has also used artistic techniques of shading and shadowing. These not only add the illusion of depth and three-dimensionality to the painting, but to direct our eyes as the viewer to the focal point of the work.

    This oil on canvas is housed in a stunning grainy wood frame with a double silver window and an inner linen lining. Both painting and frame are in excellent vintage condition.

  • Rooftops

    £340

    Available

    Free UK shipping.

    A large mid century oil on canvas, painted in a distinctly modernist style. The artist has painted a broad, panoramic view of the rooftops of a coastal town, with the view of the sea in the distance. Flat planes of colour in broad and distinct brushstrokes have been juxtaposed one next to the other, creating a sense of space and depth within the picture, leading our eyes from the foreground (the roofs) to the background (the sea). This has also created a geometric effect which gives the painting an element of abstraction.

    The painting is housed in its original mid century frame, which has a very wide profile. The inner section has been lined with a grey fabric. Both painting and frame are in good vintage condition.

    Size: 67 x 77 cm  (including frame)

    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.

    The Teapot

    £272

    Available

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    An elegant and gentle still life painted in watercolour.

    A teapot, a pitcher, a plate of fruits, and a garlic glove are laid on a table setting against a corner of a wall.

    The artist has chosen a predominately subtle and light colour palette, but has painted the teapot and tomato in rich contrasting shades compared to the rest.

    There is a great amount of detail in the work; and the delicate effects of the medium of watercolour enhances its overall softness.

    This watercolour on paper is housed in a white wood frame, and a unique dark blue card mount that picks up the colours of the blue teapot wonderfully. The artwork is glazed (there is a sheet of plexiglass between the frame and the painting)

    Both painting and frame are in excellent vintage condition.

  • Pensive Nude

    £695

    Available

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A striking and emotive large mid 20th century modernist style nude portrait, executed in oil on canvas.

    A seated nude is depicted against a wonderfully painted backdrop. With her head resting on her hand, she is in a pensive pose, deep in thought.

    At first glance, this semi-abstracted depiction of the nude figure may seem simple, but as we spend time to look at the colours and brushstrokes, we soon realise its complexity.

    Using a wide array of colours including darker pastel shades and nude tones, the artist displays an excellent understanding of colour theory as layers and pairs of contrasting shades sit beside and on top of one another, blending together effortlessly and harmoniously.

    The painting is composed with swatches of colours, each brushstroke executed back and forth with so much vigour and zest, almost a projection of the artist’s or the nude’s inner emotional state.

    This oil on canvas sits in a beautiful gilt frame with an inner dark wood window as well as linen lining. The colours of the frame complement the painting extremely well. Both painting and frame are in excellent vintage condition.

  • Window View

    £330

    Available

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A pleasant and well-executed mid 20th century still life oil composition, depicting a flower pot placed on a window sill, with a glimpse into the surroundings outside.

    Upon looking at the painting, our eyes are immediately drawn to the flower vase, as its bolder colours are in contrast to the light and gentle pastel shades of the remaining forms.

    Through the use of swift and straight brushstrokes, the artist displays his painterly skills by utilising bold outlines as well as qualities of the shading technique and smooth gradation of colour to not only give rise to the various forms in the composition, but also to give the illusion of depth and dimensionality.

    This oil on canvas is housed in a gilt frame with lovely red undertones.  Both painting and frame are in excellent vintage condition.

    Size: 52.5 x 44.5 cm (including frame)

    This painting would pair very well with another still life in our collection. Click here to view.

  • Blue Vase & Fruits

    £390

    Available

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A soothing and elegant mid 20th century still life executed in oil, where a group of fruits including an apple, orange, 3 pears as well as a blue vase are depicted atop a green surface.

    A rich and lively palette including blues and greens have been used to paint the objects, as they sit against a beautiful peach backdrop filled with multiple undertones. The artist displays his painterly skills by using different hues of each shade and blending them well together to achieve a sense of three-dimensionality for each object.

    The painting has been well-executed in an expressionist manner –  with dynamic and detailed brushstrokes lending the artwork an impressive visual and vibrant appeal.

    This oil on board is in very good vintage condition. It is housed in a well-suited light wood frame, and there is a very small area of surface paint loss to the the right edge of the frame, but this does not detract from its overall attractiveness and is in lined to its vintage feel.

    A simple yet captivating rural landscape composition, executed in oil and dated 1983.

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A lively and visually striking still life composition, executed in oil on canvas.

    Depicting a group of objects including a pair of flower vases and apples set against an outstanding cobalt blue backdrop, this painting explores the expressive qualities of brushstrokes and colour.

  • Knitting

    £350

    Available

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A beautiful and atmospheric mid century oil portrait , painted onto canvas. An elderly lady sits on a chair on a balcony, with a wicker basket by her feet, quietly knitting away. The artist has used a calm, soft colour palette to create this tranquil picture, and distinct and broad brushstrokes give it depth and texture. The artist has intentionally left out realistic details, focusing instead on form, line, shape and colour.

    This oil on board is housed in its original cream and silver frame with an inner fabric lined border, which suits this painting perfectly and really brings out its palette. The painting has an area of craquelure to the top right section, but overall the paint layer is stable. 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. Overall it is in good condition. There is a small loss to the upper left corner of the frame (as shown in photos) but again this does not detract from the overall attractiveness of the painting.

    £330

    A large and striking oil still life of a well decorated interior setting, painted in 1959 onto canvas.

    Placed atop a wooden surface sit a large jar of white flowers in bloom, as well as a red table runner.

    The artist displays his painterly skills and fine brushwork, capturing the intricate detailing of each object as well as their three-dimensional feel very realistically.

    A selection of vibrant colours including pink, yellow, green and brown have been used, and the way the contrasting shades have been layered in the background is absolutely stunning.

    This oil on canvas is housed in its original mid century gilt and wood frame with a linen lining. The painting is in excellent vintage condition. The frame has some age toning and wear to the bottom section. There is a slight widening to the joints of the inner section of the frame.

  • Quayside

    £315

    Available

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A delicate and diaphanous  oil painting presenting two sailboats docked at a quayside.

    The artist has used a restrained colour palette comprising shades of blues and greys.

  • Mountain Lake

    £340

    Available

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A semi abstract landscape view of a mountainous lake scene, painted in oil in 1975. There is an almost sketch-like, unfinished feel to this painting, which adds to its abstract quality. Yet when we take our time to inspect the painting, it is evident that the artist was very intentional with his style. Large, expressive strokes fill the canvas with swathes of colour, with some several areas painted thinly, allowing the texture of the canvas to show through.

    The painting is housed in its original mid century wood frame with reddish brown tints and an inner fabric lined border. Both painting and frame are in excellent vintage condition.

  • Nude Study

    £370

    Available

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A large, richly coloured mid century nude study oil, painted in 1949.  There is a palpable sense of ‘ease’ to the nude figure, who sits relaxed in her chair – her face and body are relaxed, with no ounce of stiffness present. Her surroundings too are homely and warm – a flower pot sits by the window with the curtain drawn open, letting the natural light in.

    The artist has painted skilfully and confidently, using a rich, saturated colour palette to paint this expressive study, and has included areas of impasto (where the painted thickly such that it stands proud from the surface)  to add texture and depth.

    The painting is housed in its original mid century dark bronze wood frame. Both painting and frame are in good vintage condition.

    Available

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A wonderfully painted mid century oil painting of a French townscape, executed in oil.

    Depicting a quiet town situated in the hills, the work has been executed in a semi-abstract manner through the use of visible and painterly multi-directional brushstrokes.

    There is a haunting beauty and a sense of melancholy in this painting –  mainly brought forth from the black tones that contrast strongly against the bold earthy shades.

    This oil on canvas is in excellent vintage condition. It is housed in a wood frame with a linen lining that has seen a loss to the bottom left corner (as shown  clearly in the photos).

    An outstanding mid century still life depicting a vase of dahlias set against a patterned backdrop, executed in oil.

  • The Long Road

    £315

    Available

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A wonderfully executed sombre oil painting depicting two figures walking down a long open road, dated 1938.

    The canvas is filled with expressive brushstrokes that have been executed confidently, in a restrained mellow colour palette.

    The figures could almost be missed at first glance – their size pales in comparison to the vast lands and gloomy skies above them.

    The painting could point to both the importance of human connection, as well as the insignificance of human life against the scale of the universe.

    The painting is housed in a robust, heavy silver painted distressed wood frame. The painting is in very good vintage condition, and the frame has some losses to the edges which have been painted over in silver and are thus inconspicuous unless closely inspected.

  • Moonlit Winter

    £345

    Available

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    An atmospheric and textured mid century oil on board of a rural winter landscape. The artist has used a restrained palette, keeping to fairly monochrome tones, with shades of white, cream, brown and black. The use of several areas of impasto (where the paint is applied thickly such that it stands proud from the surface) and the layering of the different colours give the painting depth and texture. The artist has managed to capture the sense of cold, frosty winds blowing the snow in different directions, burying the cottages that we see depicted. Sitting prominently in the sky is a full moon, adding to the atmospheric nature of the painting.

    The painting is housed in an elegant thin gold frame, which suits it very well and illuminates the painting. Both painting and frame are in excellent vintage condition.
