  • Quay Cranes

    £580

    Available

    Free shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A brilliantly executed mid century modernist seascape composition in oil, painted into board and dated 1945.

    This nautical piece depicts a winter harbourside scene, with boats docked by harbour cranes. In the distance beyond the boats, the composition is balanced by tall trees, creating depth within the picture. The painting is wonderfully textured with a matte effect and has a very painterly feel. The artist has used a range of gentle but diaphanous colours, capturing the beautiful light that is cast on this winter’s day. There are a series of juxtapositions evident, such as the way the softer curved forms of the boats contrast with the shaper harder angles of the cranes and the dock. The blues and mustard tones of the boats also contrast with the whites of the ice and the snow.

    Overall, this winter harbour scene has a very tranquil and restful feel to it. It captures the essence of a winter day beautifully, and would make a brilliant piece to rest tired eyes on.

    This large oil on board is housed in a deep profile mid century painted wood frame which suits the painting beautifully. The painting is in excellent vintage condition. The frame has some minor scuffing, commensurate for its age.

    Size: 61 x 70 cm (including frame)

  • On the Red Chair

    £980

    Available

    Free shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A large and very well executed mid century modernist oil composition, painted onto canvas and dated 1962.

    In this study of a nude figure, the artist has painted in an expressionist style, using broad and sweeping brushstrokes. The nude figure rests on a seat with a red covering, and echoed behind her is the same red fabric, presumably a curtain. The artist has intentionally left out any realistic details, focusing instead on the formal elements of colour, shape and form. The composition is very well balanced, and lighter pastel colours of the nude figure juxtapose brilliantly with the deeper and richer colours that surround her.

    This large oil on canvas is housed in a very effective silver frame with an inner linen lined border. Both painting and frame are in very good vintage condition.

    The artist’s distinct and expressive brushstrokes infuse the scene with a palpable sense of energy and vitality, capturing the dynamic essence of the landscape. Desaturated and subdued natural earthy shades of green, blue, and brown dominate the palette, adding depth and a soothing sense of warmth to the composition.

  • Pipe & Pears

    £1,145

    Available

    Free shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A brilliantly executed and characterful mid-century still life in oil, painted by the established Swedish artist Eric Cederberg (1897-1984), whose artworks have been represented in several public and museum collections across Sweden.

    In this excellent composition, an assortment of objects including three pears, a pipe, a pitcher, a lemon, and a book are thoughtfully laid out on a wooden surface.

    Working with a rich and saturated colour palette, the objects appear illuminated. They are set against a backdrop of darker shades including blue, red, black, and green that intermingle, creating a visually striking contrast that makes the bowl of pears stand out more.

    Working with a rich colour palette comprising shades of green, brown, yellow, and white, the artist has skilfully captured the three-dimensional qualities of the objects and the intricate grain of the wood, whilst simultaneously emphasizing the two-dimensional flatness of the board. The expressive and lightly textured brushstrokes further enrich the visual experience of the piece.

    This oil on board is housed in its original mid-century silver frame with an inner linen lining. The painting is in very good vintage condition. The frame has very minor scuffs, and there is light age toning to the linen lined area of the frame as shown in photos. Trust us when we say the painting is much better in real life than in the photographs! Please note that some glare is evident in the photos.

The artist has applied layers of colour, building up texture and depth, enabling us viewers to get a sense of his practice.

  • View in the Mirror

    £585

    Available

    Free UK Shipping Only.

    A large and detailed mid century modernist oil composition, painted onto canvas.

    Depicted in this composition is an interior scene. It is very cleverly executed – at first it appears to be a view out of a window, before we realise after further investigation that it is actually a mirror reflecting the outside view. This mirror is atop a table covered in objects which appear to be balls of yarn. Surrounding the mirror are figurative drawings and paintings. In the reflection of the mirror we see a window sill lined with little pots, and outside we can discern a winter view with figures and a red tram.

    This painting offers such a delightful myriad of details to explore. Painted in an expressionist style, the distinct brushstrokes give this piece its painterly feel, adding texture and tactile detail.

    This large and very cleverly painted oil on canvas is is housed in a complementary gilt frame. The painting is in excellent vintage condition, and the frame has scuffs and paint loss as shown

    The painting has been executed in an expressionist manner – the brushstrokes are visible and dynamic, moving in a myriad of directions and imbuing the painting with a sense of energy

    This painting would look perfect in a nautical-themed interior, or perhaps in a setting that is close to the sea.

    Available

    Free UK Shipping Only.

    A large and meticulously detailed mid-century interior still life composition, executed in oil onto board and dated 1946.

    Punctuating the centre of the composition is a vibrant pot of blooming pink cyclamen flowers in a blue pot, sat upon a window sill. The view beyond the window offers a glimpse into an urban architecture filled with buildings.

    The gentle and meticulous brushstrokes bring to life the delicate translucency of the curtains. The artist’s attention to detail is evident in every petal and leaf, showcasing a skillful rendering of the plant.

    The thoughtful choice of colours enhances the overall visual harmony of the painting as the respective forms pick up the colours from one another, particularly the blue, pink, and yellow accents.

    An energetic and expressive mid-century modernist river landscape painting, executed in oil onto canvas.

    This scenic nature landscape composition presents a panoramic view of a river meandering through a lush landscape.

    Available

    Free shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A rich and vivid modernist composition, painted in oil onto canvas.

    With a myriad of bold and striking colours in a series of geometric shapes, we can discern an interior scene. A framed painting of flowers hangs against a brick wall, and to the right a range of vessels sit on a table with their shadows cast against the wall behind them. The artist has not used the traditional and realistic angles, and has instead flattened the perspective and used multiple angles within the composition. The artist explores the formal elements of shape, line, colour and pattern to create this cubist composition.

    This oil on canvas is housed in a complementary silver frame with an inner linen border. The painting is in excellent vintage condition, and there are minor scuffs present to the inner silver border of the frame.

    £455

    Available

    A vibrant and expressive figurative portrait composition, executed in oil onto canvas and dated 1990.

    The focal point of the composition is a figure in a blue shirt, seated at a table and engrossed in reading a book. The background depicts a winter landscape painting hanging on the wall that has been painted with a rich mix of green and yellow hues.

  • Cradle

    £915

    Available

    Free UK Shipping Only.

    A large and striking mid century abstract modernist composition in oil, painted onto canvas.

    In this composition, a series of geometric shapes in red, orange, yellow and white are set against a black background. This juxtaposition of the bright colours  against the black immediately captures our attention, encouraging us to analyse the shapes that have been cleverly applied to the canvas. A recognisable figurative shape appears, seemingly a parent cradling a baby. Although the shapes are distinctly large flat planes, within each of the planes there is visible texture. We see evidence of the artist’s palette knife, moving the oil paint around the surface and leaving areas of impasto.

    There is very interesting contrast between focus on formal elements (shape, colour and line) and the tender subject which the artist has chosen to capture.

    This large and masterful modernist oil with its clever composition and its rich and vivid palette would certainly make for a statement piece in any interior.

    This oil on canvas is housed in a complementary black frame. The painting is in excellent vintage condition, and the frame has some scuffing but it suits the general style of the piece.

    £700

    Available

    Free UK Shipping Only.

    A large and charming mid century modernist composition in oil, painted onto canvas and dated 1945.

    In this scene we see two figures within a home setting, where a mother and a child approach a dining table with two plates visible. The artist has intentionally chosen to leave out any facial details, focusing in stead on the formal elements of the scene such as shape, line and colour. The palette is warm and earthy, largely comprising the rich tones of brown and green. 

    This large oil on canvas is housed in a beautiful distressed wood frame.  The painting has some scattered craquelure present but paint layer is stable overall. There is a small area of paint loss at the central area, as shown in close up.

  • Coalesce

    £450

    Available

    RESERVED until 19th Jan

    Free UK shipping only.

    A very large mid century modernist composition, painted in oil onto board and dated 1959.

    In this large abstract composition we see a myriad of shapes coalescing and connecting to form a whole. The forms present seem to act on each other – putting pressure on each other, shrinking each other, enlarging another, as if the forms themselves were active participants. Each shape has a role in the total organism, each one is holding the other up, supporting the whole. As a result the picture has a palpable energy – the forms and shapes almost appear to be moving around the canvas, shapeshifting and amalgamating.

    This large abstract painting is presented in  a grey mount and a champagne frame. There are some minor marks on the painting and mount.

  • Basket Carriers

    £435

    Available

    Free shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A wonderful mid century modernist composition, painted in oil onto canvas.

    Two figures with baskets on their heads are depicted through the use of broad and distinct brushstrokes. The artist has omitted realistic detailing, opting instead to focus on the forms, shape and colour of the figures and their surroundings. The palette is muted, with the use of darker blues and purple set against areas of white. The vertical orientation of this painting makes it ideal for narrow spaces, and its distinctive modernist style of painting and frame will certainly make it a statement piece.

    This oil on canvas is housed in a complementary wood frame with an inner gilt and linen window. The painting is in excellent vintage condition, and the linen border has some slight wear and age toning present.

  • Priests in Greece

    £655

    Available

    Free shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A large and striking mid-century modernist painting, executed in oil onto canvas.

    The composition presents a charming street scene at Patmos in Greece. In the foreground, two priests in black robes first draw our attention. In the background of the painting, a figure and a donkey can be seen strolling on a pathway lined with white buildings with colourful arches.

    Painted in a distinctly modernist ethos, the artist has flattened the respective forms, reducing them down to blocks of contrasting shades to demonstrate depth and a sense of space to the painting.

    A spectrum of uplifting colours have been used, and the brushstrokes are gentle, evoking a soothing and relaxing quality to the painting.

    Furthermore, by leaving areas of the canvas exposed, the artist’s creative use of negative space accentuates the shapes of the figure and objects, drawing our attention to their distinct form.

    This oil on canvas is housed in a complementary slim gilt frame. Both painting and frame are in excellent vintage condition.

    Size:  85 x 75 cm (including frame)

  • Fauvist Field

    £455

    Available

    Free shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A bright and vividly coloured mid century landscape composition, executed in oil onto board and dated 1963.

    Characterised by strong colours and fierce brushwork, this painting carries many elements of the ‘Fauvist’ style. Here we have bold, non-naturalistic colours, and wild loose dabs of paint which add a sense of abstraction to the landscape scene.  As we take in the scene, our eyes dance across the surface, following the different movements and colours that the artist has applied the canvas. There is a spontaneity to the brushwork that gives this painting its dynamic and lively quality.

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

    £655

    Available

    Free shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    An invigorating and dynamic mid-century abstract expressionist painting that focuses on a confident interplay of colours and expressive brushwork.

    Thoughtfully selecting a colour palette of white, black, brown, and striking lime green, the artist displays his painterly skills as the respective shades layer, intertwine, and overlap one another, creating a captivating visual experience.

    The brushstrokes in the painting are expressive and textured, adding a raw and tactile quality. The artist’s gestural approach to the brushwork adds a sense of movement and fluidity to the composition.

    This oil on canvas is housed in a well-suited  wood frame with an inner gilt window. The painting has some scattered areas of craquelure due to the thickness of the paint, but the paint layer is stable overall. There is a tiny 1cm slit to the canvas along the top of the painting but this is not obvious unless closely examined, a close up of this slit can be seen in the photos. The painting also has some areas of restoration which is only visible from the reverse. Overall, the painting’s appearance is good. The frame is also in good vintage condition.

  • Pink Flowers

    £875

    Available

    Free shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A very confident and well-executed modernist still life composition, executed in oil onto canvas and dated 1976.

    The composition presents an interior setting where a vase with pink flowers and a jug sit on a table, and are set against a blue-tiled backdrop.

    Through the use of powerful, expressive, and intense brushstrokes as well as dark outlines, the painting expresses the rich emotions of the artist, and the style of the painting is reminiscent of the post-war French expressionist artist Bernard Buffet (1928-1999), who was also painting around this time.

    The artist has also used the sgraffito technique, using the back of his paintbrush to create lines through the paint layer of the pink flowers, adding a sense of three-dimensionality and varied texture.

    This oil on canvas is housed in a complementary wide profile gilt frame . The painting is in excellent vintage condition, and the frame has some scuffs, but this is in keeping with its vintage style.

    The Pair

    £400

    Available

    Free shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A large and very unique mid century modernist oil composition of two figures, painted onto canvas by Swedish painter Hans Osswald (1919-1983), whose works have been exhibited at the National Museum in Stockholm, Malmö Museum as well as The Brooklyn Museum.

    The artist has flattened the surface, reducing the figures down into planes of pastel colour, that fit together like a puzzle. The palette is restrained, using a range of light blues, greys and browns. To add depth to the picture, the painting is filled with these vertical patterns, that are almost like seams that open up to reveal layers of colour underneath.

    This very interesting composition is unframed but can be hung as is. The painting has some scattered craquelure, commensurate with age. The craquelure does not detract from the overall attractiveness of the piece.

    £493

    Available

    Free shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    An outstanding and visually striking mid century abstract oil painting by Swedish painter Hans Osswald (1919-1983), whose works have been exhibited at the National Museum in Stockholm, Malmö Museum as well as The Brooklyn Museum.

    Using a restrained palette comprising shades of blue, black, green and white, large sweeping gestural brushstrokes fill the surface, creating a palpable sense of movement and dynamism. Abstract in composition, the artist has focused on texture and colour, creating a wonderful depth and interest through the use of layers of colour and texture. Osswald has added an aggregate to the paint, creating very distinct impasto and a three dimensional effect.

    This oil on board is housed in a well-suited grey wood frame with an inner silver window. There are some water marks to the left side of the painting, although it looks like this might have occurred during the time of painting and not afterwards, so it might be intentional on the artist’s part. Overall, both the painting and frame are in very good vintage condition.

    Gleam

    £386

    Available

    Free shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A thoughtful and expressive modernist style portrait, executed in oil onto canvas.

    The artwork depicts a side profile view of a young figure dressed in blue clothing, and standing beside a lamp. The lamp is glowing with warm orange light, resulting in the figure’s hair and small parts of his silhouette to have an orange gleam as well.

    Set against a light beige background, the artist has used a range of luminous colours including orange, purple, blue and green, and displays effective painterly skills in the medium of oil. Beautifully distinct and expressive brushstrokes fill the canvas, creating a vibrant and almost translucent and diaphanous effect that resembles the nature of watercolour.

    This oil on canvas is housed in a white wooden frame with gilt and linen details. The painting has some minor scuffs, but overall the painting and frame are in very good vintage condition.

    Along a Coast

    £385

    Available

    Free UK Shipping Only.

    A large, expressive and serene panoramic view of a coastal scape, painted in oil onto canvas.

    As our eyes shift from the top to the bottom of the painting, we can notice the colours intensifying – with lighter and calmer shades of blue and green filling the top half of the work, juxtaposed by rich and saturated colours in the bottom half. In addition to this, the brushstrokes similarly intensify – with softer sweeping stokes filling the top half, and short, swift and more textured brushstrokes at the bottom.

    Overall, the painting exudes tranquillity and would make a statement piece in any interior with its large size.

    This oil on canvas is housed in a wide profile gilt frame with an inner linen lining.  There are very light and minor surface marks on the top half of the painting, but it is in good vintage condition overall.

    Size: 77 x 88 cm (including frame)

    Summer Cottage

    £490

    Available

    Free UK shipping only.

    A large and brilliantly executed  impressionist style oil composition, painted in 1981.

    Reminiscent of modernist artists like Monet, this painting has a particularly romantic nature to it. Featuring expressive colouring, loose handling of the brush and indistinct forms, this painting captures the fresh and summery feel of the landscape.  Broad strokes of colour that are short and expressive capture a rural landscape scene with a cottage punctuating the right side of the composition.

    This large painting is housed in a robust wide profile wood frame that complements it very well. Both painting and frame are in very good vintage composition.

    Size: 71 x 90 cm (including frame)

    Discovery

    £635

    Available

    Free shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A large and brilliantly executed semi-abstract modernist oil composition, painted in 1974 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 painting depicts two otherworldly figures walking through an open and uncultivated landscape. Painted in a semi-abstract manner, the artist has left out realistic details and has used expressive and textured brushstrokes to capture this scene. 

    To add to the painting’s mysterious feel, the figures are not scaled proportionally to their surrounding and are larger in size. The artist has used a restrained palette of rich colours including blues and yellows – wonderfully intensifying each shade but also mixing and layering the colours to portray depth as well as the mood in this painting. 

    This oil on canvas is housed in a gilt frame with an inner linen lining. There are scattered areas of craquelure to the painting and an area of paint loss to the lower left quadrant, as shown in close up photos.
