A brilliantly executed semi-abstract mid century modernist oil composition, painted in 1959 by the established Swedish artist Ivar Morsing (1919-2009), whose works have been exhibited in public collections including the National Museum in Stockholm, Moderna Museet in Stockholm, Kalmar Museum and Jönköping Museum.
In this composition we can see two figures, each sitting on a donkey. There is an inscription on the reverse which locates the scene to Altea, in Spain. Morsing has abstracted the figures and animals, using a restrained palette of black, green, yellow and white, and omitting all realistic detail. Instead, multi-directional brushstrokes come together carefully and in a very considered manner to create the forms we see.
This oil on board is housed in a complementary gilt frame with red undertones. The painting is in excellent vintage condition, and the frame has losses and marks to its edges as shown.
Size: 25 x 38 cm (including frame)
