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.
