  • Nude with Blue

    £340

    Available

    Free shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A sensitively painted mid century oil, painted onto board.

    A female figure is depicted sitting on a wooden chair, her gaze turned away from us. Expressive and distinct brushwork has been skilfully used to paint this composition – the artist has successfully captured the form of the body, as well as the way the light hits the figure’s skin. Juxtaposed against the neutral and beige tones of the figure is ablue fabric that has been hung over the chair. This pop of colour not only creates a focal point for our eyes, but also brings a cohesiveness to the composition.

    There is a timelessness to this picture that will make it a fine addition to any interior.

    The painting is housed in a wide profile frame with silver highlights. The painting is in very good vintage condition. The frame has scattered areas of paint loss, as seen in the photos.

    Size: 63 x 55 cm (including frame)

  • Study of a Standing Nude

    £345

    Available

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A fantastic modernist style portrait, painted in oil and dated 1964.

    A nude figure is depicted standing on a muted pink platform and against a calming blue background. With her gaze slightly turned, she is back-facing the viewer and caught unaware.

    The artist demonstrates a great aptitude for painting the female body, as he skillfully captures the curves and angles of the figure.

    He has also used artistic techniques of shading and shadowing. These not only add the illusion of depth and three-dimensionality to the painting, but to direct our eyes as the viewer to the focal point of the work.

    This oil on canvas is housed in a stunning grainy wood frame with a double silver window and an inner linen lining. Both painting and frame are in excellent vintage condition.

    Size: 74 x 37.5 cm (including frame)

  • Pensive Nude

    £695

    Available

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A striking and emotive large mid 20th century modernist style nude portrait, executed in oil on canvas.

    A seated nude is depicted against a wonderfully painted backdrop. With her head resting on her hand, she is in a pensive pose, deep in thought.

    At first glance, this semi-abstracted depiction of the nude figure may seem simple, but as we spend time to look at the colours and brushstrokes, we soon realise its complexity.

    Using a wide array of colours including darker pastel shades and nude tones, the artist displays an excellent understanding of colour theory as layers and pairs of contrasting shades sit beside and on top of one another, blending together effortlessly and harmoniously.

    The painting is composed with swatches of colours, each brushstroke executed back and forth with so much vigour and zest, almost a projection of the artist’s or the nude’s inner emotional state.

    This oil on canvas sits in a beautiful gilt frame with an inner dark wood window as well as linen lining. The colours of the frame complement the painting extremely well. Both painting and frame are in excellent vintage condition.

    Nude Study

    £315

    Available

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A large, richly coloured mid century nude study oil, painted in 1949.  There is a palpable sense of ‘ease’ to the nude figure, who sits relaxed in her chair – her face and body are relaxed, with no ounce of stiffness present. Her surroundings too are homely and warm – a flower pot sits by the window with the curtain drawn open, letting the natural light in.

    The artist has painted skilfully and confidently, using a rich, saturated colour palette to paint this expressive study, and has included areas of impasto (where the painted thickly such that it stands proud from the surface)  to add texture and depth.

    The painting is housed in its original mid century dark bronze wood frame. Both painting and frame are in good vintage condition.

  • Figure in Pastel

    Sold

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    An excellently executed nude figure study in pastel, framed behind glass.

    This nude study captures the female form elegantly and expressively. The artist has used long, narrow lines to outline the form, and used hatching to capture the three dimensionality of the  form of the body, giving the drawing a sculptural quality. A different technique has been used to fill in the background – it seems the artist has used the pastel to colour over a textured surface to create a dappled effect.

    The pastel has been beautifully framed in a wood and gilt frame, and is set behind glass to protect the vulnerability of the medium. Both pastel and frame are in excellent vintage condition.

  • Summer Walk

    Sold

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A bright and very well executed mid century oil, painted in canvas.

    We see a female figure en verso, her form reduced to a series of thin outlines in black. Wide and sweeping brushstrokes in pastel colours have been applied – vertical strokes for the figure, and horizontal strokes in the background. This seemingly simple composition has in fact been very skilfully executed, with the contrasting shades of non realistic colour creating depth and a sense of space, light and shadow.

    The painting is housed in a thin frame, which gives it a contemporary edge. Both painting and frame are in very good vintage condition.

  • Sorrow

    Sold

    SOLD

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    An emotional vintage nude oil portrait, painted in 1948. This mid century oil on board is a raw yet beautiful depiction of sadness and sorrow. A sole nude female figure sits with her head between her knees, with nothing around her except for the green stool she is seated on. Her face is concealed by her arm, adding to the idea that  sadness is a human condition experienced by many, and a reminder that we are not alone when we feel fragile or negative

    The painting is housed in a distressed gilt frame with an inner white window, which suits the painting very well. The painting has areas of paint loss and flaking (perhaps an uncanny reflection of the fragility and vulnerability of the portrait in the painting).

    Size: 41.5 x 31 cm (including frame)

  • La Danse

    Sold

    SOLD.

    A fantastic and striking modernist oil painted onto canvas.

    This expressive artwork captures a nude woman in a pair of white stilettos as she dances away. The artist has skillfully highlighted the silhouette of her body in a darker shade and with textured brushstrokes; and these energetic lines reinforce a sense of movement as her body grooves in action.

    The figure is set against a backdrop of bold and contrasting colours, imbuing the work with so much vigour and liveliness.

    This oil on canvas is in excellent vintage condition. It is housed in a complementary gilt frame that has some marks and scuffs.

    Size: 64 x 53 cm (including frame)

  • Standing Nude

    Sold

    SOLD.

    A fantastic modernist style portrait, painted in oil onto board. The artist has used smooth, distinct brushstrokes to compose the figure, leaving out realistic details and features. There is a sense of timeless-ness to this piece, where place, time and context are not present. One of the most attractive features of this piece is the way in which the artist has skilfully allowed the board to show through and has even incorporated it such that it adds to both depth and shade. We also get a sense of the ‘behind the scenes’ workings of the artist which certainly adds to the charm of the piece.

    This oil on board is housed in its original champagne gilt frame with an inner fabric lined border which suits the painting beautifully and really makes it a stand out further. Both painting and frame are in excellent vintage condition.

  • Thoughts from the Bedside

    Sold

    SOLD

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    An emotive vintage mid-century of a nude figure seated on a chair by a bedside, executed in oil.

    The woman’s gaze is turned away from the us, and she seems to be deep in thought. There is a soft glow particularly to the background, alluding to candlelight.

    This classic, timeless oil features soft and painterly brushstrokes that have been thoughtfully executed. The artist has used a muted earthy colour palette that reflects the calm, tender mood of the setting.

    This oil on canvas is is housed in a wide profile black frame with an inner gilt window. Both painting and frame are in very good vintage condition.

  • The Dressing Room

    Sold

    SOLD

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    An interior scene painted in a muted and earthy palette, showing a shadowy interior with a group of figures painted in a modernist style. The artist has used the medium of tempera to paint this picture, which is the technique of painting with pigments bound in a water-soluble emulsion, such as water and egg yolk, or an oil-in-water emulsion such as oil and egg. Tempera dries to a hard, fairly translucent film, which in this case enables us to see the drawing beneath the painting, giving us a rare view of the artist’s workings.

    The painting is very beautifully presented in a pine box frame, and is in good vintage condition. There are some minor surface paint losses to the right side but these do not detract from the overall charm of the picture.

  • Halcyon Garden

    Sold

    SOLD.

    A gorgeous impressionist oil painting depicting a lady in a hat seated out in a garden, reminiscent of the style of the French painter Auguste Renoir. This artwork has a sense of the romantic, and in its colour palette and brush work there is a soft-focus evocation of a halcyon day. The artist has used the same comma-like brushwork pattern for both sitter and background, creating a rather romantic effect where the dappled sunlight on the leaves of the trees has cast a similar light on the sitter’s body and chair, so she beautifully blends into her surroundings.

    It is housed in a very unique frame. Within the outer gilt frame there is a grey slip which has speckles of coloured paint lightly applied to it. Both painting and frame are in excellent vintage condition.

  • Seated Nude

    Sold

    SOLD

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A wonderfully painted modernist composition of a female nude figure, skilfully executed in oil in 1942. The model is portrayed in a home setting, seated on a bench  against a sanguine and green background. With her gaze facing away from the viewer, she is unaware and caught up in her own thoughts.

    Expressive and swift brushstrokes have been executed in a confident manner. The artist demonstrates a deep understanding of the relationship of colours, and also of the human body. Not only has he captured the curves of her anatomy wonderfully, but has also mixed and layered the various earthy tones to render the complex nature of skin perfectly and with great emotion.

    This oil on canvas is in good vintage condition. It is housed in a complementary wood frame lined with linen and an inner white border. The mid century frame has signs of ageing that are typical for its age, but these imperfections add to the charm of the piece.

    Size: 63 x 56 cm (including frame)

  • Nude Model

    Sold

    SOLD

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A fantastic life drawing in oil, painted on canvas which has then been laid down to board. The artist has managed to capture the complexity of the human body, while keeping to the impressionist style. The curves, lines, and subtle undulations of the female model, as well as her weight, balance and tension have been conveyed through the use of brush and colour.

    This well balanced, vertical composition has been framed beautifully in a silver wood frame. There is some very light craquelure to the figure’s upper torso, but the paint layer is very stable overall. Both painting and frame are in good vintage condition.

    Size: 59 x 33 cm (including frame)

  • Pastel Nude

    Sold

    SOLD

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    This large abstracted depiction of the female figure may seem simple at first glance, but as we spend the time to look at its forms, lines and colours, we soon realise its complexity. In some ways a reminder of the Nude Blue cut-outs series by Henri Matisse, the nude figure in this painting has been abstracted down to a group of shapes and colours. The artist has avoided any attempt to mimic reality and has instead used blocks of soft yet contrasting colours to create a sense of space and three dimensionality. Paint has been applied lightly and sparsely, allowing the raw canvas to show through.

    Painted by  in 1968, this wonderful oil is housed in a red and gilt wood frame with a linen slip, and is in excellent condition with some minor scuffs to the frame.

    Size: 71 x 59 cm (including frame)

  • Recline

    Sold

    SOLD

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    An absolutely stunning mid 20th century oil painting of a female nude on a lounge chair in a reclined position.

    The female figure is well-composed and has an air of confidence. Her hair is styled in a bun, without a single strand out of place. At work, she is a woman of power, and she has just returned home after a long day of negotiating deals, wanting to unwind.

    The viewer is unable to make eye contact, as she is faced away gazing to the distance, and appears to be caught up in her thoughts, and not wishing to be interrupted.

    Her body recognises that it is time to unwind and leave one’s worries behind, as she is sat in a relaxed manner – with her slender legs stretched out, and her hands laid across the arm rests.

    It is signed and dated 1943 to the lower left, and is complemented by its gilt frame.

    Size: 33 x 56cm (including frame)

    Both painting and frame are in excellent vintage condition.

  • Blue II

    Sold

    SOLD

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A wonderful figure study of seated nude in watercolour and ink detailing. Hues of blue bleed into the paper, and the sanguine outline adds a a wonderful rust coloured contrast to the blue wash. It would definitely make quite a statement in any interior.

    The painting is housed in a double grey card mount and an oak frame.

    Size:  52.5 x 45 cm (including frame)

  • The Bathers

    Sold

    SOLD

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    An expressionist scene of 2 female bathers against a watery landscape. The figures have their backs to the viewer, and we are only able to able to catch sight of the side profiles.

    Bathers in art have been a long-standing tradition since the Renaissance, and this artwork in particular is reminiscent of the bathing scenes from Paul Cezanne.

    The forms of the two nudes are bold and well emphasised, as their silhouettes have been outlined by thick black lines .The artist has used quick and short brushstrokes, as well as heavy impasto to create a sense of three dimensionality in this work. The orderly blocks of blue in differing shades in the background helps create the illusion of depth in this painting.

    The painting is surrounded by a fantastic and robust original ash and green frame.

    It is in excellent vintage condition.

    Size: 77 x 62 cm (including frame)

  • Balance

    Sold

    SOLD

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    An excellent composition of a nude study in gouache, depicting a female figure perched on a stool. There is a palpable tension within this picture. With her legs raised, the muse grips the rear legs of the stool, balancing her slender figure on the equally slender wooden stool.  The simplicity of this picture is very effective – clean lines and a limited colour palette lend themselves well  to this very visually pleasing composition.

    Recently framed in a very complementary oak and maple frame with a white card mount, this gouache on paper is in excellent condition.

    Size: 61 x 46.5 cm (including frame)
