  • Dusk

    £400

    Available

    Free shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A large and very atmospheric mid century modernist landscape in oil, painted onto canvas.

    This moody, expressionist painting features an array of textured detailing, showing off the artist’s mastery of the medium.  Notwithstanding the dark and deep colour palette, the artist has skilfully created several layers of blended colour that give the painting an illumination from within that was hard to capture in the photos and is much more pertinent in real life. There is a glow from the painting that suggests that the scene is of sunset, just before the landscape loses its light completely. We love the little details such as the textured dots of pink applied to the lower half of the composition, alluding to little flowers in the grassy meadow.

    This brilliant painting is housed in a gilt frame with green highlights around its outer edges. There are several inner windows, both linen lined and gilt. The painting and frame are both in very good condition. The linen section has some minor age toning, commensurate with age.

    Available

    A beautiful and gentle mid-century modernist portrait, executed in oil.

    The composition depicts a female figure in a green dress who has a book placed on her lap. Set against a blueish-grey background, she is sitting on a chair and is beside a brown desk.

    Although an everyday scene, there is something alluring about the simplicity of the scene of which the artist has wonderfully captured.

    All realistic details have been omitted, and the artist has simplified the composition down to painterly elements such as shape, form and colour. In addition to using a restrained soft colour palette, he has also intentionally left the canvas surrounding the female’s silhouette unpainted, adding character to the piece.

    This oil on canvas laid on board is housed in a complementary gilt frame with an inner linen lining. The painting is in very good vintage condition. There are areas of scuff and paint loss across the frame, particularly at the right side.

    A brilliantly executed modernist landscape composition in oil, painted in 1970.

    In this picture, two boats sit in shallow waters, and behind them we see a small cottage that is backed by mountains. The artist has painted in distinctly separate planes of colour, using a tiered effect of complementary colours that gives the composition its depth. The palette is restrained, dominated mainly by blues, yellows, greys and browns. The brushstrokes are visible, giving us a sense of the artist’s process of creation as well as giving the painting a textured effect. The painting has a very restful ambience to it, and would be such a fine addition to any interior.

  • Bridge Crossing

    £345

    Available

    Free shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A small but very charming modernist expressionist oil, painted in 1937.

    In this picture we see a figure crossing a stone bridge that leads towards a cottage, surrounded by lush greenery. This painting is both reminiscent of the post-impressionist style of artists like Van Gogh, as well as of Fauvist painters like  André Derain. It features bold, undisguised brushstrokes in vibrant colours, and is very much a subjective, emotional response to the landscape (as opposed to just painting the landscape as realistically as possible).

  • Still Life with Jugs

    £525

    Available

    Free shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    In this well-executed and detailed work of art, there is a strong focus on colours, shapes and form.

    Using a muted earthy colour palette, the artist has thoughtfully used contrasting blocks of colours to illustrate two jugs set against a similarly-coloured background. The differing shades help to create a sense of space as well as make the three-dimensionality of the objects more pronounced.

    Fine and smooth brushstrokes have been used, and in addition to the stunning colours, there is a sense of warmth and gentleness instilled in the painting.

    This oil on board is housed in a  mid century wood frame with an inner linen lining. There are some marks and minor paint loss at the top of the painting (as it might have been reframed), however the work is in very good vintage condition overall.

    £650

    Available

    Free UK shipping only.

    Measuring over a metre in both width and length, this very large abstract oil composition would certainly make for a statement piece in any interior.

    The painting features large planes of colour, in a very calming palette of blue, grey, brown, white and black. As you study the painting closely, you begin to notice pops of colour within and amongst the sections, such as green, orange and red. The painting is incredibly textured, and features several areas of impasto (where the paint is applied so thickly it stands proud from the surface).  We get a sense of the artist’s movement as he or she works her way across the canvas, moving left and right and up and down. The blocks of colour have been applied in a very considered way, resulting in a very well balanced composition that is very pleasing on the eye.

    The painting is housed in a simple frame that suits its modern look. Both painting and frame are in very good vintage condition. The painting has some minor paint loss to the outer edges but these are very inconspicuous due to the style of the painting. The paint layer is very stable overall.

  • Holding Together

    £590

    Available

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A stunning abstract composition in oil, painted by British artist Marian Hyland. The painting is housed in a handmade frame (by the artist) which has been crafted specifically for the painting that sits within it.

    Marian’s practice centres around the relationships of space, shape and colour, created by the interplay between drawing, painting and collage.

    In this piece, the process of mark making and layering, informed by observations of natural environmental processes (e.g. textures and marks left behind through decay/neglect, industrial architecture/landscapes and random associations of objects and surfaces) are important factors in the work.

    Her paintings evolve intuitively to find rather than make the work. She continues to build up and simplify until the composition settles cohesively.

    Both painting and frame are in excellent condition.

    Size: 35.5 x 35.5 cm (including frame)

    Available

    Free UK, Europe & Singapore shipping.

    A semi-abstract mid century modernist landscape composition in oil, painted in 1949.

    Painted in an expressive style, the artist has set a group of birch trees against blocks of colour in a myriad of green, yellow and blue shades to create a sense of space and width in the composition. The artist has skilfully painted this in a way that we are able to still discern the birch trees, the lake behind them, the mountains and the sky.

    The painting is housed within a distressed silver frame with red tints showing through. The style of the frame suits the style and colours of the painting wonderfully. Both painting and frame are in very good vintage condition.

  • Stripes

    £570

    Available

    Free UK shipping only.

    A quintessentially mid century abstract modernist Scandinavian oil composition, painted onto board.

    The artist has used a simple yet very effective and rigorous grid composition, where black lines are set against thicker vertical lines in mustard and outlined in blue, over a background of off-white. This geometric grid composition is reminiscent of modernist artists like Piet Mondrian, who also created patterns with syncopated rhythms.

    The painting is housed in a very complementary maroon wood frame, that really completes the piece. There are some areas of restoration to the painting, and there are areas of scuffing and paint loss to the frame, as shown in photos.
