    An outstanding and lighthearted still life portrayal of florals placed in a blue slender vase and brown pitcher respectively.

    The flowers – painted in soft yellow hues – have great angular edges and are looking cheery. The artist has chosen not to portray the full representation of the vases, adding  an element of mystery to the overall work.

    The objects are placed against a lightly textured background comprising of multiple shades of brown that have been painted with bold brushstrokes; and the earthy colour palette of this work would suit a wide array of interior settings.

    This work is well-presented in a slightly distressed off white wood frame, giving it a rustic feel.

    Both painting and frame are in excellent vintage condition.

    Size: 34.5 x 50 cm (including frame)

  • Calla Lilies in the Moonlight

    Sold

    SOLD.

    A large and brilliantly executed mid century still life in oil, painted in 1948.

    A group of fluted flowers sit within a simple cylindrical vase on a windowsill. The way in which the artist has painted the moonlight streaming in gives this painting its distinctly cinematic quality.  The glow of the flowers underneath the moonlight add to this dramatic effect. The colour palette has a hint of melancholia, where deep colours of blue and green repeat throughout the composition, from the flowers, to the vase they sit in , to the sill and to the window. With its richly romantic character and its delicately balanced composition, this mid century oil would definitely add something special and elevate the space it is hung in.

The artist has used planes of colour and small brushstrokes that build up to form complex fields.

  • Cornflowers

    Sold

    SOLD.

    A quaint mid century still life in oil depicting a jug filled with cornflowers and a single lemon beside it.

    The style of the painting is reminiscent of the expressive still lifes by Modernist artist Vincent Van Gogh, particularly in the background where we see systematically arranged brushstrokes.

    Th painting has been painted on a sheet of canvas which has been mounted onto board. It is housed in an oak frame which suits it very well. There is some slight wear to the painting, commensurate for its age.  There are some scuffs and marks to the frame but this is in keeping with its overall vintage style.

    A large and visually striking modernist style floral still life composition, executed in oil onto canvas.

    Painted in an expressionist manner, the artwork is full of texture and character as it depicts a blooming pot of flowers placed against a blue coloured background.

    Our eyes are immediately drawn to the flowers as their lighter shades of white and orange are contrasted against the deep and rich colour palette of dark blues greens and browns.

    The artist displays his painterly skills, using the impasto technique by applying thick layers of paint such that it stands proud from the surface and adds a textural feel, as well as confidently executing long and bold brushstrokes to creating a composition full of dynamism.
