  • 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).

    This vibrant oil composition is housed in a dark wood and gilt frame that suits its homely look. Both painting and frame are in very good vintage condition.

    Size: 32.5 x 41 cm (including frame)

    A small but striking mid century abstract oil composition, painted onto board and well framed.

    The artist’s display his painterly skills – as he wonderfully layers contrasting colours upon one another to create this outstanding and lightly textured composition.

    The painting is housed in a light wood frame that has been bleached lightly, with the wood grain still visible. There is some general overall age wear to the piece, but this is in keeping with its vintage style and is commensurate with age.

  • Mellow 1 & 2

    £590

    Available

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A stunning pair of abstract compositions in oil, painted by British artist Marian Hyland. Each 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 pair, 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 paintings and frames are in excellent condition.

    Size: 27 x 32 cm each (including frame)

  • Still Life, Painted Objects

    £300

    Available

    A small but powerful still life composition by British artist Lloyd Durling, painted with oil stick, oil pastel and graphite onto linen panel. Signed, titled and dated on reverse.

    Central to this painting is an intense engagement with oil stick and graphite on linen that explore the interface between painting, drawing and collage. There is a balance between expressive play and tight control and with this comes an expanse of associations that push beyond simple categorisations of abstraction or scale. The information in each painting, given by gesture or mark, is reduced to a fleeting register on the surface, as if each mark has to count.  

     

    Both painting and frame are in excellent condition.

    Lloyd Durling is a British artist working in London. His practice is painting-based and he has exhibited widely throughout Europe, U.S.A and Asia. In 2017 he was awarded a Pollock-Krasner Foundation grant. Works are held in both public and private collections worldwide.

    The idea of topography is of central importance and is explored through continuing walking projects. These serve as opportunities to gather diverse source material through physical and emotional interactions with whichever environment chosen to traverse. It amounts to a kind of urban and rural wandering where the information gathered is reinterpreted or reimagined feeding into a deep connection with landscape, arrangements of ancient monuments, light, shadow and forgotten histories – all of these elements find a way into the work.

    A small but powerful abstract composition by British artist Lloyd Durling, painted with oil stick, oil pastel and graphite onto linen panel. Signed, titled and dated on reverse.

    £350

    Available

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore..

    A small yet characterful mid-century abstract painting, executed in oil onto board.

    Although largely abstract in nature, the painting could resemble a winter scene, with trees with orange leaves in a snow-covered landscape.

    This painting is characterised with short and expressive brushstrokes that have been executed in a swift and confident manner. This adds vigour and a lovely texture to the work.

    The painting’s small size would make it the perfect addition to a shelf, bookshelf or above a bed side table.

    This oil on board is mounted on a wide profile wood frame that suits the painting perfectly and enhances it. Both frame and painting are in very good vintage condition.

    Available

    A small but very well executed mid century oil, painted onto board and beautifully framed in its original mid century wide profile frame.

    In this quaint picture, we see a lone figure walking by a cottage.

The colour palette of rich earthy browns and cream imbue this painting with a wonderfully subdued and mellow tone.

  • Mirage

    £325

    Available

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A subtle and lightly textured miniature landscape composition, executed in oil in 1980.

    Painted in a semi-abstract manner, the artist has left details of the landscape fairly obscure as he depicts vast open skies and a row of houses stretched across a rural land.

    A range of soothing neutral earth tones have been used, and the darker to lighter shades transition across the canvas so harmoniously and thoughtfully.

    This oil on canvas is in very good vintage condition. It is housed in a silver frame with red undertones, that contains some minor scuffs. The painting’s small size would make it the perfect addition to a shelf, bookshelf or above a bed side table.

    Black & Blue

    £289

    Available

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A deep and soulful abstract composition rendered in oil. Swathes of colour in varying forms tease our imagination – do we see something recognisable? Angled forms peek out in different directions, reminiscent of the silhouette of an almost undiscernible city skyline at night time. For others perhaps the composition is a reminder of jazz music – with its careful balance of spirit, freedom and form.

    This oil on board is housed in a silver frame, and both painting and frame are in very good vintage condition.

    A lovely mid century oil on board of a pair of horses by a river, painted in 1958. This painting has a wonderful countryside and rural feel to it.

    Double Sided Portrait I

    £165

    Available

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    An intriguing double sided oil on board:  one side depicts a pair of women looking into a book, and the other side features a striking single portrait of a woman.

    The painting of the two ladies with the book is very textured, with multi directional and distinct brushstrokes creating a very dynamic and layered image. On the other side, the portrait of the woman is smoother in texture overall, but still has a very three dimensional effect. The woman has an air of mystery about her, leaving us wondering what she might be thinking about.

    Painted onto board, both paintings are in very good vintage condition and can be displayed on either side. There is some slight paint loss to the very edges of the board but certainly does not detract from the overall charm of either picture. It could be displayed in its current state on an easel or leant against a shelf. Should you wish to have it framed and would like our assistance, you can contact us via email info@discerningpalette.com.

    Vision

    £221

    Available

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A sombre panoramic landscape presenting vast open lands of shrubs, with mountains fading into the distance.

    The artist has used a restrained colour palette comprising mostly of various shades of blue, with some hints of green in the foreground.

    The brushstrokes, though soft and subtle, are thoughtful and precise, imbuing  the work with an overall sense of nostalgia and mystery.

    It is worth mentioned that the edges of the work remain visible, exposing the substrate beneath it. This vignette effect further draws our attention to and emphasises the subject matter.

    This oil on panel is housed in a complementary silver frame. Both artwork and frame are in excellent vintage condition.

    Off to School

    £225

    Available

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A lovely and endearing miniature oil on canvas depicting a scene of a pedestrian walkway on a fine summer’s day.

    A woman in the foreground can be seen walking with her 2 children to drop them off at school. They are holding flowers in their hands, that they’ve picked along their journey.

    Rich and saturated colours fill this energetic painting; and the short and textured brushstrokes imbue the work with a sense of liveliness and joy.

    What’s special too is that the artist has uniquely enhanced the greenery portion by adding graphite detailing in a ‘scribbled’ manner, adding a sense of three-dimensionality to the trees.

    The painting is housed in a white card mount, and a green stained wood frame with a blue and gold inner wood border. The colours of the frame pick up on the colours within the painting beautifully, making it stand out even more. The work is glazed (there is a layer of plexiglass between the frame and the painting) to ensure its longevity.

    Both painting and frame are in excellent vintage condition.

  • Seated in Orange

    Sold

    Free UK, Europe & Singapore shipping.

    A small but very striking and expressive portrait in oil, painted on board and mounted within a frame.

    The artist has used a vivid combination of orange, blue and red to compose this scene of a casually seated female figure. The artist has left out the figure’s facial details, focusing instead on the form of the body, and using broad and gestural brushstrokes to create the image. There is a timelessness to the piece that would make it very versatile for any interior. It’s small size would make it a good addition to a gallery wall.

    The painting is housed in a light box frame. The painting is in very good vintage condition. There is a mark to the lower right corner of the frame, as shown in photos.

  • The Boat

    Sold

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A small, mid century oil on board, painted in 1957.

    A seemingly simple yet very effective composition of a boat, painted in a semi abstract manner. The artist has  applied bold, broad and textured brushstrokes on the board, in deep, rich, vivid colours. Through the use of colour, the artist suggests to the viewer that this is a scene at sunset. The horizontal brushstrokes in the background  start off in a palette of blues, suggesting the sea, and then as we move upwards, the artist has incorporated reds, pinks, yellows, and orange tones to capture the sunset sky.

    The painting is housed in a wide profile wood frame with visible grain. Both painting and frame are in good vintage condition.

  • Winter Rooftops

    Sold

    SOLD.

    A small but stunning mid century modernist landscape composition in oil, painted in 1959.

    This excellently proportioned composition features the snow covered rooftops of a group of houses, painted in a soothing and subtle colour palette. The artist guides us into appreciating the formal qualities of this scene, such as the angular lines and shapes of the roofs, doors and windows, the geometry of the houses stacked up against each other and the repeated patterns created by colour, shape and line. Contrasted against the very angular structures of the buildings are the more free flowing trees, whose branches peek out above the rooftops. The red and ochre walls of the houses and the blue of the sky stand out beautifully against the large planes of white snow.

    This painting is housed in a very well suited gilt frame with a lighter inner window. Both painting and frame are in very good vintage condition.

  • Rosewood

    Sold

    SOLD

    Free shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A very soothing and restful mid century landscape composition in oil, painted onto board.

    A winding river leads our eye deep into the picture, transporting us into this rural wintery landscape surrounded by nature, where pockets of snow rest quietly on the ground. In the distance we see a wooded landscape lining the horizon, with just the tops of the mountains peaking out from behind. The rising sun casts its pinkish – purple hue over the landscape, giving this picture its warm glow. The artist has skilfully captured the peaceful and tranquil feel of this rural landscape through the use of expressive brushwork and colour.

    The painting is housed in  a very complementary gilt frame. Both painting and frame are in excellent vintage condition.

  • Offload

    Sold

    SOLD.

    A small but very interestingly executed mid century oil on board, housed in a wonderful frame.

    This semi abstract composition features broad, expressive and textured brushstrokes. The artist has used contrasting and non-realistic colours to create a discernible scene where two figures appear to be standing on a truck with an open door. The artist has also exercised restraint with his paint, using what appears to be simple and minimal brushwork to execute the scene at hand. It is this restraint that shows off the artist’s skill, and makes the composition a very satisfying one to admire.

    This oil on board is in very good vintage condition. It is housed in its original mid century linen-lined frame. There are ageing spots on the frame, commensurate with its age.

  • Country in Colour

    Sold

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A small but very striking mid century semi-abstract composition in oil.

    Reminiscent of the 20th century modernist style of ‘fauvism’, this painting features the classic fauve feature of separating colour from its descriptive, representational purpose and allowing it to exist on the canvas as an independent element. In this picture, the colour establishes a structure within the work without being true to the natural world. Its brushstrokes also carry the fauve style of being short and separated, creating a sense of movement within the picture.

    Vivid, expressive colours and spontaneous brushwork contained within a small composition create a piece that would stand out in any interior. It would work as a single piece in a small space that needed a lift, but would also work well as part of a group hang.

    The painting is housed in an off white painted wood frame that enhances its vintage character. Both painting and frame are in good vintage condition.

  • Together

    Sold

    SOLD.

    An absolutely delightful mid century oil by Swedish artist Ivar Morsing, painted on to canvas. This seemingly simple yet very effective composition depicts figures on a beach. The artist has left out all realistic detail, using gentle yet expressive brushwork to capture the figures. There is a softness, and a tender-heartedness to the way he has captured the scene. Despite the use of the very minimalist palette, the artist has very skilfully imbued the painting with a luminosity, which is further enhanced by the gilt frame that surrounds it.

    Both painting and frame are in excellent vintage condition.

  • The Pick Up

    Sold

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A wonderfully energetic and eclectic oil painting of a street scene, painted in a Naïve style.

    A well dressed couple with interesting expressions on their faces stand waiting along the pathway with a row of quaint and colourful houses behind them. A black taxi is seen bumbling its way down the road, presumably to pick the couple up.

    The artist has consciously chosen to eliminate realistic proportions as exemplified in reality – enlarging the scale of the 2 figures in comparison to their surroundings.  The vibrant colour palette as well as the swift and expressive brushstrokes used imbue the painting with a lively playfulness.

    This oil on board is in good vintage condition. It is housed in a silver frame with an inner linen lining, with some very minor scuffs that are only visible upon close inspection.

  • East and Beyond

    Sold

    SOLD.

    A small but powerful abstract composition by British artist Lloyd Durling, painted with oil stick and graphite onto linen panel. Signed, titled and dated on reverse.

    Central to these paintings is an intense engagement with oil stick and graphite on linen that explore the interface between painting, drawing and collage. There is a balance between expressive play and tight control and with this comes an expanse of associations that push beyond simple categorisations of abstraction or scale. The information in each painting, given by gesture or mark, is reduced to a fleeting register on the surface, as if each mark has to count.  

     

    The idea of topography is of central importance and is explored through continuing walking projects. These serve as opportunities to gather diverse source material through physical and emotional interactions with whichever environment chosen to traverse. It amounts to a kind of urban and rural wandering where the information gathered is reinterpreted or reimagined feeding into a deep connection with landscape, arrangements of ancient monuments, light, shadow and forgotten histories – all of these elements find a way into the work. 

    Both painting and frame are in excellent condition.
