  • Trellis

    £390

    Available

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A striking mid century modernist abstract composition, painted in oil onto board.

    In the centre of the composition we see thickly applied layers of paint and this area of impasto in grey and rust brown creates an initial focal point. The composition has a grid like effect, with layers of paint contrasting against each other in a myriad of ways. The crossed angles in which the paint has been applied create a distinct sense of depth to the painting, drawing our eyes further and further inward to discover the various layers. The lighter colours sit underneath the darker, earthier colours, giving it a luminous effect.

    Although the picture does not depict anything identifiable, it is very expressive and emotional in its effect,  created both through the colour palette as well as the gestural way in which the paint has been applied.

    The painting is housed in a dark wood frame with a linen lined border.  There are some age spots on the top left of the painting, but it is overall in good vintage condition. There are minor scuffs to the frame, commensurate with its age.

  • Horses on the Meadow

    £380

    Available

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A beautifully executed mid century composition in oil, painted in 1949.

    In this picture, we see a a group of animals including a horse grazing on the meadow. Long, gestural brushstrokes fill the canvas with thick paint, creating a wonderfully textured effect.  The artists skilful and expressive brushwork blends the paint beautifully to create the three dimensional forms of the animals. It is clear that the artist has incorporated more than just the visual scene before him – we get a sense of the way the light hits the meadow, the slight wind in the air, the movement of the sky above and the blades of the grass below.

    This excellent painting is housed in a solid wood frame which adds to its ‘country’ appeal. Both painting and frame are in very good vintage condition.

    Flutter

    £276

    Available

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A calm and tranquil oil painting on canvas. 4 geese are mid flight on the left hand side, while wispy grasses gently sway with the breeze. A blue-ish mist is discernible in the background, suggesting a cold crisp early morning. The artist has used a soft, muted colour palette, which suits the serene and calm scene impeccably.

    The painting is housed in an elegant gilt frame. Both painting and frame are in very good vintage condition.

    £700

    Available

  • Sale!

    Roosters

    £259

    Available

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A truly striking and vibrant scene of a pair of roosters set within an expressive landscape dotted with trees and other animals. This painting has an exceptional three dimensional quality to it, with very thickly applied brightly coloured oils on the canvas. The artist has caked on the paint and has then shaped it, not using a brush, but with a palette and fingers.  Here the artist has used the paint not simply to depict part of the picture, but to be part of the picture. These techniques are reminiscent of modernist artists such as Vincent Van Gogh, whose use of paint was often pronounced and dramatic, as is the case with this painting.

    The scene taking place has much to offer, with other animals appearing in unexpected places. Every aspect of this picture has been given a life of its own – the swirls of the trees, the dynamic strokes of the sky, the comma like stabs of the grass. Wonderful contrasts of colour and different forms of paint applications lend a sense of depth, and create such an array of interesting features to notice.

    This oil on stretched canvas is in excellent vintage condition. It is unframed but can be hung as is.

    Size:  46 x 55cm

  • Wild Horses

    Sold

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A lovely mid century oil on board of a pair of horses by a river, painted in 1958. This painting has a wonderful countryside and rural feel to it. The horses appear to be wild horses who have stopped by a river to have a drink. There is a sense of carefree-ness and freedom captured within this quaint painting.

    This oil on board is housed in a gold leaf frame, and is in very good vintage condition.

  • Glory

    Sold

    SOLD

    Free UK shipping.

    A very large and very bold original mid century composition in oil, painted in 1967.

    In this striking painting, a figure stands with arms held high, carrying a fish. Three birds circle the figure and fish, and a round, shining yellow sun shines down from the top right corner. The painting has been painted in a distinctly modernist style, taking influence from the simplified, stylised and monumental figures of Iberian and African tribal art and sculpture. The celebratory way in which the figure holds up his catch imbues this painting with such joy and exultation.

    The large size, colour palette, texture and subject matter of this painting would make it a real statement piece in any interior.

    The painting is housed in wide profile dark silver frame. Both painting and frame are in excellent vintage condition.

    Size: 95 x 79 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.

  • Hens

    Sold

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A brilliantly executed mid century modernist oil composition, painted in 1959.

    Here the artist depicts 3 chickens, but has intentionally left out realistic details and has instead chosen to focus on the formal qualities of shape, line and colour. He has also incorporated lots of texture by using thick paint applied in quick successive motions. This playful picture has been skilfully executed and would make a wonderful addition to any interior.

    The painting is housed in a wood frame with a linen lined border. Both paining and frame are in good vintage condition. The frame has some minor scuffs to the left edge but this does not detract from its overall attractiveness.

  • The Crossing

    Sold

    SOLD.

    A confidently executed and beautifully textured mid century landscape with reindeer, painted in oil onto board.

    This painting is both reminiscent of the post-impressionist style of artists like Van Gogh, as well as of Fauvist painters like  André Derain. It features thick, bold, undisguised brushstrokes in vibrant colours, and is very much a subjective, emotional response to the landscape (as opposed to just painting the landscape as realistically as possible). That being said, the artist has managed to strike a find balance between an emotional response and capturing the scene before him and how it looked. The combination of the texture and colouring of this painting makes it a stand out piece.

    The painting is also housed in an excellent castleton green frame with an inner white border. The painting is in excellent vintage condition. There are some losses to the lower section of the inner white border of the frame that are only visible upon close inspection. These losses do not detract from the overall attractiveness of the piece.

  • Flock of Sheep

    Sold

    SOLD.

    A calm and gorgeous mid 20th century oil painting depicting a flock of sheep in a nature.

    The soft pastel and earthy pastel colours create an air of serenity; and the precise and lightly textured brushstrokes imbue the painting with a tinge of vitality.

    Overall, the varying shades and brushstrokes in this work flow impeccably –  leading our eyes gently from the foreground where the sheep are huddled together, to the background where the vast open land, mountains and blue sky lie beyond in the horizon.

    This oil on canvas is housed in a grey frame with an inner gilt window that complements the painting wonderfully. Both painting and frame are in excellent vintage condition.

  • Horseman

    Sold

    SOLD.

    This mid century geometric abstract is painted in oil onto board and presented within an off white slip and a gilt frame.

    Drawing on a distinctly modernist ethos, this painting is reminiscent of works by artists such as Pablo Picasso. We see a removal of ‘superfluous’ elements of both animal and human to reach a simple linear abstraction. The artist has intentionally chosen not to depict the figures realistically, and has instead reduced them down into shapes and lines. Simple yet effective outlines connect seamlessly, standing out against a vivid background of reds, greens, and whites to create this striking composition.

    The painting is housed in a excellent frame that suits the picture brilliantly. It has an off white slip and a gilt frame with hints of red. Both painting and frame are in excellent vintage condition.

  • Stay with Me

    Sold

    SOLD.

    An endearing and sentimental painting depicting a pair of birds amidst snow covered branches. The palette depicts a beautiful analogy, where the warmer palette used to paint the birds is representative of the warmth of the love between them, which stands out against the cold landscape made up of a white, blue and grey.

    A painting that speaks for love, companionship and support. Painted in 1945.

    Housed in a stunning and very complementary deep gilt frame, both painting and frame are in very good vintage condition.

  • The Snail

    Sold

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A bold and typically mid century 1960s abstract composition in oil, painted onto board.

    Featuring cubist influences and reminiscent of the style of works by modernist artists such as Pablo Picasso, this abstract in oil comprises a series of shapes and forms in a deep and earthy palette of green, black, brown and yellow and white. The beauty of a work like this is that is very much subject to personal interpretation – one may be able to discern the shape of a snail, but this may not be the case for everyone, some may see a pair of acorns perhaps. Alternatively, it may be a purely abstract composition altogether, and not representative of anything in reality. We are able to just enjoy the fact that the group of shapes in contrasting colours have been carefully laid out,  encouraging our eyes to move across the canvas and take in the different pieces making up the puzzle.

    This satisfying painting is housed in its original, and very unique, mid century frame with several windows that create a wonderful optical effect. Both painting and frame are in very good vintage condition.

  • Looking On

    Sold

    SOLD.

    Free UK Shipping Only.

    A very large and striking mid century oil on canvas, housed within a gorgeous wide profile wood frame.

    Broad, loose brushstrokes, vibrant colours, and narrative elements are all features of this large composition.  There are several details to notice in this expressive painting  – an archipelago boat sails on the water, with a large white bird swooping towards it. A small figure in black stands to the lower central section, and to the right edge we see a the side profile of a larger figure, looking on towards the scene.

    It seems that this is a memory of a scene that the artist has painted, rather than something that is taking place before him. The emotive style of brushwork and colour denotes an expression of feeling, rather than reality. The artist has gone beyond the depiction of external nature and has instead given form to an inner vision.

    The raw, almost unfinished appearance, combined with the swirls of paint in rich colours bears influences of the Norwegian expressionist painter Edvard Munch, who was also known to paint subject matter which was symbolist in content, depicting a state of mind rather than an external reality.

    The painting is housed in its original mid century frame which suits it perfectly. The frame shows off its wood grain beautifully, and is further enhanced by an inner gilt window. The painting is in good vintage condition, with some minor surface scuffs and marks typical for a piece of this age. The frame has some surface paint losses to the inner window.

  • Before the Rain

    Sold

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A mid century landscape motif painted in oil onto board, and framed in a very complementary light blue frame.

    A pair of cows rest on the rural pasture, and behind them sit two farm sheds. To the sky, brushstrokes have been applied in a very expressive manner – swirls of blue draw attention to the cloudy skies. The cows lie on the grass , also an ‘old wives” indication that rain might soon arrive. To the bottom half of the picture, short, repetitive and distinct strokes mark out the field.

    This wonderfully expressive and textured landscape is housed in a light blue frame. Both painting and frame are in good vintage condition.

  • A Snowy Day

    Sold

    SOLD.

    An enchanting mid 20th century snowscape executed in oil.

    Upon first glance, what’s most eye catching is the large bird in the middle of the painting soaring across the sky. Despite its impressive size, the artist has wonderfully captured its grace and beauty as it glides through a semi-frozen lake with docked boats.

    Short and vertical painterly brushstrokes have been used to paint the snow; and the frosty winter colour palette of blue, grey, green and pale yellow tones lend an air of softness and coolness to the overall work.

    This oil on board is in good vintage condition, but do note that the board is slightly warped at the top left hand corner. It is housed in a complementary wooden frame with a linen lining.

  • Cows in Colour

    Sold

    SOLD.

    A fantastic panoramic landscape of farmland complete with cows, farm buildings, and a skyline in the distance. This oil has been painted in a fauvist style,  emphasising painterly qualities and strong colour over representational or realistic values. Here we have bold, non naturalistic colours, and wild and loose brushstrokes. The colourful palette and expressive marks would certainly make a statement in any interior.

    The painting is housed in a silver-grey frame with speckles of black. Both painting and frame are in excellent vintage condition.

  • The Wagon

    Sold

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A playful and vibrant scene of 2 figures with a donkey wagon, painted in a fauvist style. The artist has used an array of non-naturalistic colours in loose sections, and has simplified the subjects such that it leans towards abstraction. He has also applied the theory of complementary colours in this painting, where pairs of colours that are opposite each other on a colour wheel are used side-by-side in the painting,  making each other look brighter as a result. There is also a rejection of traditional three-dimensional space, as the artist has instead used flat areas of patches of colour to create a sense of pictorial space, drawing our attention to his use of bright emotive colours, simple shapes and painterly mark-making. We notice also that the artist has intentionally left areas of the canvas uncoloured and showing through.

    The painting is housed in its original mid century dark wood frame with an inner dark gilt border. Both painting and frame are in good vintage condition.

  • Sunday Mornings

    Sold

    SOLD.

    A wonderfully panoramic and picturesque large oil on board, dated 1944. Beautiful blue skies look down upon a rural farm scene, with cows lazing amongst the green fields. Post-impressionist elements stand out within this picture, such as the blue that the artist has used to render the way the light hits the trees.

    At almost a metre in width, this large yet calming landscape would make a statement piece in any interior.

    This painting comes housed in a gilt frame with black staining details, and is in excellent vintage condition.

  • Fish & Potatoes

    Sold

    SOLD.

    A very well executed mid century still life in oil, painted onto board and dated 1946.

    We have here a kitchen scene – a cook’s ingredients are laid out on a table, ready to be prepped. A real example of why still life can be such a joy, where ordinary objects are given pride of place, drawing our attention to them when they would normally have been overlooked.

    Expressionist brushstrokes are visible in this still life, reminiscent also of the still life paintings by Paul Cezanne, a renown French modernist painter.

    We particularly like the juxtaposition of the dark coloured cast iron pan against the white of the water jug.

    For us, this painting has a homely and sentimental feel – a reminder of a warm home cooked meal, and of loved ones that feed us and that are to be fed.

    This painting would look wonderful hanging in a kitchen or within a dining area.

    It is housed in a robust gilt frame with a dark border. The painting is in very good vintage condition, and the frame has some very minor scuffs to its edges.

  • Chickens

    Sold

    SOLD.

    A beautiful Swedish mid century composition in oil of a group of chickens, painted onto board. The artist has used a wonderfully earthy palette, and beautifully delicate brushstrokes to paint in the chickens. The overall composition has a very balanced feel to it, with the two middle chickens crossing necks. The texture of the painting is also very pleasing – the medium is smooth and creamy and has a matte feel overall.

    The painting is housed in a very complementary dark wood frame which matches the colours in the painting perfectly. Both painting and frame are in excellent vintage condition.

  • Minimalist Sheep

    Sold

    SOLD

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    An outstanding oil painting that explores the concepts of minimalism and abstraction.

    The artwork depicts a group of sheep situated in between 2 large trees in an orangey yellow landscape setting, where all forms presented are spontaneously outlined in thin black lines.

    Upon first glance, this work may be recognised for its childlike simplicity. However as we take time to explore the painting further, we notice that the artist has thoughtfully chosen to eliminate non essentials – focusing our attention to the beautiful essence of colour as well as the qualities of lines that may come across as simplistic but inherently powerful enough to give rise to forms.

    This oil on canvas is housed in a grey frame that complements the painting wonderfully. Both artwork and painting are in excellent vintage condition.

  • Twilight

    Sold

    SOLD.

    A blissful and serene painting executed in oil, depicting a flight of geese soaring across the sky at twilight, above blue oceans and grassland.

    Fine and light brushstrokes have been executed delicately, which wonderfully captures the tenderness of this moment- as the sunlight softly diffuses, before nightfall prevails.

    This oil on board is in good vintage condition, although there appears to be some marks from the previous frame that is visible on the outer edge of one side of the board. The work is housed in a thick gilt frame that has areas of marks and scuffs (as shown in the images)

  • Autumn Hare

    Sold

    SOLD

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A really unique semi-abstract oil painting of a hare in an autumnal landscape. One could be forgiven for missing the hare on first glance, as it almost blends into the grassy landscape. The artist has managed to convey the reality of catching a fleeting sight of a hare leaping through the grassy meadow – one blink and you’ll miss the little creature. Expressive brushstrokes in earthy colours of orange, rusty browns and reds, and greys and greens form the majority of the picture, with the stunningly painted hare starkly in the middle – its white ears and tail stand out from the background, drawing our attention lest we miss it.

    The painting is housed in an simple wood frame, which suits it wonderfully. The painting is in excellent vintage condition. The frame appears to have had some restoration work done to upper left and lower left corners, as shown in the photos.

  • The Bullfinch

    Sold

    SOLD

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    An absolutely delightful and delicate watercolour of a Bullfinch perched upon a branch. The light green oval mount and coloured frame with gold detailing suits the little watercolour perfectly.

    This framed miniature is in excellent vintage condition. It is glazed (there is glass between the painting and the frame).

    Size: 40 x 32cm (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.

  • Two for Joy

    Sold

    SOLD.

    Painted in 1974, this joyful oil painting depicts two magpies perched within a luscious green tree. The artist has combined textured layers of paint and a playful colour palette to create this delightful painting. Swirls of pastel blue, orange and brown contrast beautifully with the much quicker and heavier dabs of green and yellow of the leaves on the tree.  As the well known nursery rhyme goes, sighting two magpies signifies the arrival of joy and good luck.

    This painting is housed within a vintage style box frame that has been painted black. The frame has minor scuffs and the painting is in excellent vintage condition.

    For those that may no longer remember, here’s the famous rhyme about magpies:

    “One for sorrow,
    Two for joy,
    Three for a girl,
    Four for a boy,
    Five for silver,
    Six for gold,
    Seven for a secret,
    Never to be told,
    Eight for a wish,
    Nine for a kiss
    Ten for a bird
    You must not miss.”

    Size: 38 x 34 cm (including frame)

  • Mi Casa

    Sold

    SOLD

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    An outstanding expressionist painting presenting a well decorated interior setting.

    A wide array of warm and bold colours as well as short and lightly textured brushstrokes have been used to create this homely atmosphere.

    The artist has creatively depicted a myriad of detail in this artwork – from the paintings hanging on a wall beside a bookshelf in the background, potted plants set on a window pane that overlook a garden filled with autumnal coloured trees, and most strikingly, the table in the foreground where a sewing activity was taking place, and a piece of fabric held down by a unique duck shaped planter.

    The painting is housed in a complementary beige and brown frame. The painting is in good vintage condition, with a an area of surface paint loss. The rest of the paint area remains stable. The top left inner section of the frame also has a minor loss.

    Size: 80.5 x 69cm (including frame)
