    Free shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A vivid and quirky mid century modernist still life, painted in oil onto canvas.

    Featuring a saturated colour palette and bold, expressive brushwork, this painting captures a kitchen top scene in a Naïve style. It leans towards semi abstraction, with a shift away from traditional perspective and a focus on formal elements like shape, line and colour. It is reminiscent of the St Ives artists who worked under a similar ethos inspired by the landscape of West Cornwall and used its shapes, forms and colours as a source for much of their work.

    This oil on canvas is simply framed, and is in good vintage condition.

  • Altea

    £530

    Available

    Free shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    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.

  • Home Studio

    £495

    Available

    Free shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    An expressive and brilliantly detailed mid-century composition of an interior setting, executed in oil onto canvas.

    The setting takes place in a wonderfully ‘lived-in’ home studio, with an interesting array of objects, furniture and artist tools depicted within picture. Painted in an expressionist manner, the artist’s brushstrokes are short and swift, lending an energetic and spontaneous quality to the piece. The loose style of painting further emphasises the immediacy of the moment captured. Although no one is present in the scene, there is a sense the artist has only just left and will return shortly – his or her palette is still visible with paint on, a pot of brushstrokes on the table behind, and a chair immediately in the front of the table.  On the left, we also get a glimpse of a view outside the studio.

    The artist has used a rich and uplifting colour palette, adding a lively feel to the work. Each object is represented with a spectrum of colours, enhancing their three-dimensional forms and inviting the viewer to explore their detail.

    This oil on canvas is housed in a complementary gilt frame with an inner linen border. The painting is in excellent vintage condition, and the frame has very minor scuffs.

  • Sale!

    Roosters

    Original price was: £305.Current price is: £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

  • Lady & Rooster

    Sold

    SOLD.

    An expressive mid-century figurative composition, executed in gouache and dated 1953.

    The painting captures a striking side profile of a female figure holding a rooster with her right hand. The woman’s statuesque form contrasts with the rooster’s tense posture.

    The artist has used long, sweeping brushstrokes that are both expressive and fluid, imbuing the scene with a sense of intensity.

    The use of gouache allows for rich, opaque colours to beautifully overlay one another, displaying flatness yet demonstrating depth to the painting.

    This gouache on paper is glazed (there is a layer of glass between the frame and the painting to ensure its longevity). The painting is in very good vintage condition, and the frame has losses to its edges.

    Size: 84.5 x 67 cm (including frame)

  • Birds by the Harbour

    Sold

    SOLD.

    A fantastic mid-century modernist style composition of a harbour, executed in oil onto canvas.

    The painting presents a vibrant scene of boats at a harbour, with seagulls flying in the clear blue sky.

    The style of the painting is typically modernist in ethos, as the artist has deconstructed the scene down to blocks of contrasting shades, focusing on colour contrast to create a sense of depth and space.

    Each respective shape seems to occupy its own distinct space, yet together they form a cohesive and harmonious whole.

    The colour palette is rich and saturated, imbuing the work with a lively feel. And the painting has a soothing smooth finish.

    This oil on canvas is housed in a complementary light wood frame with an inner linen window. Both the painting and frame are in excellent vintage condition.

  • Horse Riders

    Sold

    SOLD.

    A brilliantly executed semi-abstract oil composition painted in 1963 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.

    The composition presents 2 figures riding horses in a desert landscape. Painted in a semi-abstract style, the artist’s deliberate omission of realistic details encourages viewers to focus on the overall atmospheric ambiance, as well as on the beauty of brushstroke and colour.

    The use of painterly and expressive brushstrokes creates a sense of energy throughout the painting. And the clever use of a limited colour palette of rich browns, blue, and black tones in subtle variations not only helps to unify the composition and create depth and three-dimensionality, but also a warm and earthy atmosphere

    This oil on board is housed in a well-suited silver frame with an inner linen border. The painting is in excellent vintage condition, and the frame has some light scuffing and wear.

  • Midnight Gallop

    Sold

    SOLD.

    A wonderfully executed and expressive mid-century composition of a horse and a rider, executed in oil onto board and dated 1954.

    Set against a backdrop of darkness illuminated by intricate patterns, a horse is depicted in bold strokes of vibrant hues and exudes a sense of power and dynamism. A rider stands beside the horse, his form similarly delineated by confident strokes.

    The dark backdrop serves as a dramatic contrast to the vibrant figures in the foreground, creating a sense of depth and atmosphere.

    This oil on board is housed in a beautifully decorative frame with a gilt border. The painting is in excellent vintage condition, and the frame has some paint loss to its corners as shown.

  • Cat on a Couch

    Sold

    SOLD.

    A delightful and very cleverly painted composition in oil, painted onto canvas.

    Simple but very effective in its composition, we see an interior scene of a cat curled up on a striped couch. The colours of the couch and background are pastel and gentle, thus focussing our attention on the red pillow and black and white cat. The artist has applied the paint in broad and gestural strokes, and in certain areas we see impasto where the paint has been applied thickly and stands proud from the surface. The cat has been very cleverly painted in a few simple strokes of thick creamy paint.

    For anyone who owns (or has owned) a cat, this painting would be such a lovely and poignant addition to an interior.

    This oil on canvas is housed in a complementary slim wood frame. The painting has scattered craquelure as shown in the close ups but the paint layer is stable overall.

  • Fiery

    Sold

    SOLD.

    An emotive and striking mid-century composition, executed in oil onto board by the established Swedish artist Eric Elfvén (1921–2008), whose works have been exhibited in public collections including the Moderna Museet in Stockholm, Jönköping Museum, Borås Art Museum, and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.

    At the heart of the composition stands a commanding bull, its presence set against a backdrop ablaze with fiery hues of orange and red. Beside the bull, a torador courageously waves a muleta.

    Executed in an abstract manner, the scene is rendered through a masterful reduction of form, where blocks of contrasting colours intersect to create depth and intensity. The limited yet rich palette, coupled with expressive brushstrokes, evokes a profound emotional resonance, inviting viewers to immerse themselves in the drama and passion of the bullfighting spectacle.

    This oil on board is housed in a complementary slim gilt frame. The painting is in excellent vintage condition. The frame has some scuffing as seen in photos.

    Containing elements of fauvism,  this striking painting emphasises bold colours and vivid textured brushstrokes as it presents a figure sleighing through a winter landscape forest.

  • White Horses

    Sold

    SOLD.

    A striking and expressive mid-century landscape of 2 horses in nature, executed in oil onto canvas.

    In the foreground of the painting, our attention is immediately drawn to the 2 horses, as their white colours contrast starkly against the green meadow.

    As we move our gaze upwards, the painting subtlety reveals a dramatic sky that dominates the middle and background of the painting. The sky is painted in an outstanding shade of blue, and upon closer inspection, we can notice black undertones, that create a sense of intensity. There is also a spot of yellow which we can infer to be the setting sun, as well as an area of black, which we can infer to be the dark clouds emerging.

    This oil on canvas is housed in a complementary slim gilt frame. There are scattered areas of craquelure, mainly to the centre of the painting, as shown, but paint layer is overall stable.

  • Toreador

    Sold

    SOLD.

    A striking mid-century modernist composition, executed in oil onto board.

    A matador, exquisitely dressed in a tailored suit adorned with intricate patterns, stands confidently in the center of the arena as he holds a red muleta and is faced with a bull.

    Behind them, a sea of indistinguishable yet well-dressed onlookers are present. Their silhouettes blend together, emphasizing their role as collective spectators rather than individuals. The absence of facial detailing allows the viewer to focus on the spectacle unfolding in the arena.

    The colour palette used in this well-executed painting is rich and saturated. These bold colours infuse the scene with energy and reflect the artist’s desire to evoke strong emotions and create visual impact.

    This oil on board is housed in its original mid-century linen lined frame with an inner and outer wood window. There is a little age toning to the linen border, and the frame’s corner joins have widened slightly. However the appearance is still very good and the frame is stable.

  • Modernist Cow

    Sold

    SOLD.

    A captivating mid-century modernist landscape composition, executed in oil by the established Swedish artist Ture Fabiansson (1910-1994), whose works have been exhibited in public collections including the Moderna Museet in Stockholm, The Museum of Art in Gothenburg, Jönköping Museum, Borås Art Museum, and many others.

    Emphasizing the interplay of shapes and colours,  we can discern trees in geometric shapes of green and purple, and the pasture landscape in brown and mustard yellow.

    Flat brushstrokes and the use of a muted colour palette featuring earthy tones and subdued shades blend harmoniously together, creating  a refreshing yet relaxing feel to the painting.

    The painting encapsulates the essence of a modernist aesthetic, with a minimalist approach and focus on capturing the inherent beauty and simplicity of everyday moments.

Behind him, a loyal canine companion stands faithfully, providing a subtle touch of companionship and his presence enhances the feeling of comfort within the setting.

    The background of the painting is adorned with blocks of light and gentle muted colours, predominately featuring shapes of orange and green.
