  • 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.

    Size: 32 x 35 cm (including frame)

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

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

    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.

    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.

  • Snow Day

    Sold

    SOLD.

    A wonderful little narrative painting depicting a group of people having fun in the snow. The artist has used a mainly pastel colour palette for the majority of the picture, but has included a pop of red and green that invite us in to enjoy the picture. A group of 3 figures building what appears to be a snowman form the centre of the composition. Framing them are houses to the eft and right, and several other figures and trees. The artist has used soft but sweeping brushstrokes to create this expressive narrative painting which adds texture to this lovely painting.

  • Abstract Landscape

    Sold

    SOLD.

    A striking miniature landscape oil painting, executed in an abstract manner, painted in 1987.

    Upon first glance we notice the broad, expressive and textured brushstrokes filling up the canvas of this lively composition.

    As our eyes rest on the composition, we begin to take in the way in which artist has skilfully managed to abstract what appears to be a pleasant landscape (blue and purple skies in the background, lush greenery in the foreground) through the use of contrasting colours.

    This oil on canvas housed in a white box frame would make a lovely statement piece that would suit a shelf or a gallery hang perfectly. Both artwork and frame are in excellent vintage condition. The pins that have been used to fix the canvas onto the frame are visible around the outside edges of the frame, as shown in photos.

  • Misty Fields

    Sold

    SOLD

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A uniquely framed oil depicting a trees by a lake. The frame truly brings the small landscape to life, with its inner beading drawing our eyes in toward the centre, where we notice small and fine brushstrokes in calming tones of green, white, grey and blue. The deep profile of the frame adds a ‘window’ like effect, and its silvery mottled edges outline the overall picture wonderfully.

    The oil painting is in excellent vintage condition. The frame has some minor paint loss and scuffs to the edges, most of which has been restored.

    Painting size: 11 x 14.5 cm

    Overall size: 23.5 x 27 cm (including frame)

  • Midsummer Dance

    Sold

    A beautifully atmospheric miniature mid century oil, painted onto canvas. The artist has captured this lively evening scene of a group of figures having a dance, conveying a sense of carefree joy and celebration as people dance away into the night.

    Despite this being an evening scene, the artist has skilfully imbued the painting with a luminosity, using a colour palette that successfully captures the feel of twinkling lights against an evening sky.

    The painting is housed in a very complementary dark wood frame with an inner silver border which further illuminates the painting. Both painting and frame are in excellent vintage condition.

  • Scarlet Trees

    Sold

    SOLD.

    A row of bold scarlet red trees take centre stage – their fiery foliage attempt to obscure the landscape, but through their trunks we are given a glimpse of what is beyond. Colourful cottages dot the landscape, backed by green rich hills.

    This painting may not be large in size, but it certainly does not lack intensity and punch.

    The grey-green frame with hints of gold outlines the painting wonderfully – its evenly spaced divots draw our eyes in towards the picture.

    The painting and frame are in excellent vintage condition.

    Size: 29.5 x 26.5cm (including frame)

  • Suffuse

    Sold

    SOLD

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A soothing miniature abstract painting executed in oil, painted in 1964. This artist has used elements of abstraction to depict what appears to be a cityscape of buildings, with hints of greenery in the foreground, although this is a subjective interpretation.

    Although the contrasting colour blocks of muted pastel tones of sand, grey, taupe imbue the with a sense of calm, the artist’s use of swift and energetic brushstrokes invigorate this work with subtle liveliness. 

    This oil on canvas is in excellent vintage condition. It is housed in a gilt frame that has hints of red.

  • Through the Terrain

    Sold

    SOLD

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A soft and lovely work of art rendered in oil, dated 1954.

    A group of men are depicted carrying bags of sand on their head, as they transport the goods from one end of a terrain to the next.

    The artist has executed the work with gentle brushstrokes; and the selection of the neutral earthy colour palette consisting of green, purple blue and clay imbues the work with a subdued feel of lightness.

    The painting is in good condition overall. There are tiny pin holes and losses to the edges on both sides of the painting (as depicted in the images), but in our opinion this does not detract from the work.

    It is housed in a very complementary grainy wood frame that is in excellent vintage condition.

  • A Quiet Village

    Sold

    SOLD.

    A delightful and very textured street scene painted in oil, depicting a group of houses in a village. The colour palette used parallels the natural world, with a mix of neutral tones such as white, earthy orange, and variegated greens. It is a highly textured work, with several areas of distinct impasto (where the paint has been applied thickly such that it stands proud from the surface) creating a three dimensional effect.

    The painting is currently unframed, and is painted onto sturdy board. It could be displayed in its current state on an easel or leant against a shelf. It is in very good vintage condition. There is some surface paint loss to the outermost edges but this does not detract from the main image.

  • Exhale

    Sold

    SOLD

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    This zen winter landscape rendered in a muted palette in oil is both simple and striking.  A snow covered field stretches into the distance, its horizon lined by a row of hazy trees. Mounds of seemingly barren land peak through the thin layer of snow. But barren it is not, merely taking its chance to rest through winter before the busier season of crops begin again. Its ploughed lines extend forward into the distance – here is the earth taking a long, much needed exhalation. A reminder that we all need to take a moment or two to rest, relax and breathe from time to time.

    The painting is housed in a very complementary silver wood frame with hits of red showing through.  Both painting and frame are in very good vintage condition.

    Size:  33 x 49 cm (including frame)

  • Friends

    Sold

    SOLD

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A well-executed oil on canvas depicting 3 good friends having a conversation in the outdoors on a winter’s day.

    What’s most striking is the use of the impasto technique – where the artist has confidently applied thick layers of paint on the canvas, giving it an outstanding three-dimensional appearance.

    Although a restrained colour palette with a predominance of blue, green, and orange can be seen, the way that the artist has skilfully layered and blended the colours together so harmoniously is simply stunning.

    Furthermore, there is a layer of varnish that coats the surface of the painting. This gives it a layer of shine, enhancing its aesthetic appeal, whilst acting as a layer of protection to the artwork.

    This oil on canvas is housed in a complementary rattan-lined wood frame with an inner silver window. Both artwork and frame are in excellent vintage condition.

    Do note that some glare is evident in the photograph due to the varnish on the picture.

  • A Country Walk

    Sold

    SOLD.

    An idyllic view of a country path curves to the left, obscuring our view of what lies just beyond the bend, tempting us to continue on in order to find out.

    This picturesque miniature reminds us of the natural simplicity and beauty of what a simple country walk can offer. Flower lined paths and rolling hills beyond –  such a small picture and yet so much captured within.

  • Paris

    Sold

    SOLD

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    An absolutely stunning miniature impressionist painting of a view in Paris, most probably Montmartre. This original oil carries such confidence within its small frame. The artist shows off his skill, contrasting strong and heavily impasto-ed areas of thick paint (achieved through the use of a palette knife) with areas of detail and softer brushwork. The artist has managed to perfectly capture the sunlight pouring over the roofs of the grand buildings, and the city streets below.

    Housed in a thin gilt and linen-lined frame, this miniature oil is in excellent vintage condition.

  • St Germain

    Sold

    SOLD

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    Saint-Germain-des-Prés, the 6th Arrondissement of Paris, is best known for the literary and artistic celebrities who lived and worked here in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. It was the meeting point for existentialists, painters, and writers. This vibrant painting of the quarter accurately conveys its youthful energy and atmosphere.

    The oil painting is in good vintage condition, including some typical signs of ageing to the linen lining on the frame.

  • Morning Flight

    Sold

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A absolutely stunning oil painting of birds in flight across a coastal landscape. The artist has managed to capture the crispness of an early winter morning, with a purple hue enveloping the landscape. The glowing rays of the sun have begun to warm up the sky, its rays reflecting off the water’s surface. The addition of the pair of birds mid-flight completes the composition of this oil perfectly.

    The oil painting by Egon Lennart Karlsson is housed in a gilt frame and is in excellent vintage condition.
