  • On the Red Chair

    £980

    Available

    Free shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A large and very well executed mid century modernist oil composition, painted onto canvas and dated 1962.

    In this study of a nude figure, the artist has painted in an expressionist style, using broad and sweeping brushstrokes. The nude figure rests on a seat with a red covering, and echoed behind her is the same red fabric, presumably a curtain. The artist has intentionally left out any realistic details, focusing instead on the formal elements of colour, shape and form. The composition is very well balanced, and lighter pastel colours of the nude figure juxtapose brilliantly with the deeper and richer colours that surround her.

    This large oil on canvas is housed in a very effective silver frame with an inner linen lined border. Both painting and frame are in very good vintage condition.

  • Helene

    £475

    Available

    Free shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A brilliant modernist-style figurative painting of a nude, executed in oil and dated 1961.

    The composition captures a standing nude within a minimalist interior setting. Placed against lightly-coloured walls, the absence of extraneous details draws attention to the portrayal of the subject.

    The standing figure, bathed in muted and naturalistic tones, emanates a quiet elegance. The colour palette, delicately chosen, imparts a softness to the painting, creating an atmosphere of subtle intimacy.

    The artist employs expressive and distinct brushstrokes with confidence, skillfully rendering the three-dimensional qualities of the standing nude. The use of varying shades within each brushstroke highlights the contours of her form, allowing the viewer to appreciate the subtle interplay of light and shadow. Furthermore, the artist’s deliberate omission of her facial features directs our focus to her graceful form.

    This oil on canvas has been laid onto board, is housed in a complementary frame with a hessian lined outer border. The painting is in excellent vintage condition, and the frame has some minor scuffing to its inner window.

  • In the Shadows

    £505

    Available

    Free shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    An emotive and visually captivating abstract figurative painting, executed in oil onto canvas and dated 1973.

    Small yet impactful, a standing abstracted figure punctuates the center of the composition. The figure is skilfully defined with subtle black outlines that emphasize its silhouette. The use of these outlines adds a sense of distinction to the composition.

    The figure stands boldly against a backdrop of muted greys and blues, which has been executed with broad and expressive brushstrokes. These brushstrokes convey a sense of movement and emotion, and the limited and somber palette of greys and blues evokes a sense of melancholia.

    This oil on canvas is housed in a slim silver frame which complements the painting very well. The painting is in excellent vintage condition, and the frame has some minor scuffs.

  • Affection

    £510

    Available

    Free shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A tender and captivating mid-century figurative painting, executed in oil onto board and dated 1944.

    A female figure in a flowing red dress that is seated is the focal point of the composition and first captures our attention. She is cradling a baby in her arms affectionately, and her silhouette is highlighted through the use of bold black outlines. The bodies of the woman and baby meld together, forming a harmonious unity and symbolising the timeless bond between mother and child. They are set against vibrant orange and yellow hues with subtle hints of green and blue in the backdrop.

    Painted in a semi-abstract manner, the artist has omitted all realistic details and has also deliberately omitted the facial features of the figures. The use of painterly and expressive brushstrokes executed with vigour and confidence adds a beautiful textural quality to the painting, and the rich and vibrant colours heightens the emotionally charged atmosphere.

    This oil on board comes unframed. The painting has some paint losses to the edges of board, but this would be hidden by a frame.

  • Seated

    Sold

    SOLD.

    A brilliantly executed and characterful modernist figurative composition, executed in oil onto canvas and dated 1958.

    The painting features an elongated figure seated on an orange and cream platform, set against a contrasting purple-grey backdrop. Containing elements of abstraction, the painting captures the essence of the human form through expressive brushstrokes, rich muted colours, and a reduction of realistic details.

    The figure, has been rendered in creamy tones with expressive hints of muted blue, purple, and pink, and its elongated and seated form suggests a contemplative state. Through skilfully layering of colours, the artist has exposed the underlying grey that delicately traces the silhouette of the figure, enhancing its presence and providing a subtle sense of structure amidst the abstract composition.

    This oil on canvas is housed in a complementary purple frame that pairs wonderfully with the painting. There is a very small area of craquelure to the figure, as shown in close up photos, but this is commensurate with age and does not detract from its overall attractiveness. The painting is otherwise in excellent vintage condition.

  • Soul

    Sold

    SOLD.

    An absolutely brilliant mid century nude study, painted in oil and dated 1944.

    In this composition a female figure sits on an intricate fabric, her gaze turned away from us. The minimalist palette of her body sits in contrast to the richly coloured fabric below her, creating a wonderful juxtaposition. The artist’s brushstrokes are long and expressive, giving this piece its painterly feel.

    Although we don’t know the story behind this painting, the inscription on the reverse which translates to ‘My first and greatest love’ hints at the figure’s significance to the artist and imbues the painting with so much more meaning.

    The painting is housed in a really lovely deep profile frame which suits it wonderfully. The painting has some light age marks and the frame has some scuffing, but neither of these detract from the attractiveness of the piece.

  • Studio Nude

    Sold

    SOLD.

    An excellently executed mid century nude composition, painted in oil onto canvas.

    The artist’s use of colour to create depth and contrast, his expressive and painterly brushwork, and the placement of each brushstroke and how it fits into the composition, are a showcase of his technical and artistic mastery. The composition is wonderfully balanced, with the perfect amount of negative space. A rich colour palette applied in long, broad brushstrokes draw our eye to the nude first. We explore the figure – angular and multidirectional brushstrokes that seem effortlessly applied have in fact been considered carefully, creating just the right amount of light and shade. The artist has left out realistic details of the figure’s body, and yet his allusions through the use of colour leave us perfectly content in knowing what we are looking at it – a fine example of his mastery with his medium and colour. The figure is set against rectangular blocks of colour which tease us into exploring the objects around the figure, while providing balance and harmony within the composition.

    The painting is in very good vintage condition and is unframed. It can be hung as is, or set in a new frame. There is a lining around the edges of the stretcher from the previous frame which has worn over time (as shown in close ups), but this can be easily removed.

  • Seated Study

    Sold

    SOLD.

    A gentle and brilliantly executed mid-century modernist figurative composition, executed in oil into canvas.

    Depicting a nude female figure seated on a chair with her posture slightly slouched, the painting invites viewers to appreciate the subtle nuances of the human body and the interplay between light and shadow.

    The facial details of the female figure have been deliberately omitted, focusing our attention on her curves and form. Through masterful expressive brushwork and the skillful use of colour contrasts, the artist captures the essence of the figure, evoking a sense of intimacy and mystery.

    The overall colour palette of the painting features delicate shades of light brown, soft pinks, and muted greys. The interplay of these gentle hues creates a harmonious atmosphere, enhancing the serene and timeless quality of the composition.

    This oil on canvas is housed in a complementary slim wood frame. Both painting and frame are in very good condition.

  • Grace

    Sold

    SOLD.

    An intriguing and very confidently executed large oil on canvas, painted in 1987 by female Swedish artist Marianne Kanter, who monogram can be seen in the top left corner.

    On first glance the painting seems almost voyeuristic – we see the backs of two men staring at the undressed female figure. As we take the time to study the painting, in particular the female figure, we begin to notice her expression – she stares directly at us with an enigmatic gaze, completely aware of her position in the room and the attention she holds, both from us as well as the male figures we see. Her confidence is unmissable. Notably, the painting is by a female artist (Marianne Kanter). Could it be that this painting was a comment on the ‘male gaze’, a term coined a few years before in the 70s? We might never know the answer for sure, but it certainly makes the painting a beguiling and intriguing one.

    This large oil on canvas is presented in a very complementary slim frame that suits it perfectly. Both painting and frame are in excellent vintage condition.

  • Nude Study

    Sold

    SOLD.

    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.

  • Leaning Model

    Sold

    SOLD.

    Painted in 1945, this painting is a brilliantly executed mid century modernist figure study, painted in oil onto canvas.

    There is a wonderful painterly quality to this piece – we get a sense of the artist’s workings, with his black outlines around the figure’s head and body left visible. There is a real focus on the forms in this composition – with planes of colour in angled shapes juxtaposing each other. The artist has used vivid earthy colours in this figure study, and there is a lovely ageing to the piece which adds to its charming quality.

    The painting is housed in a beautiful wood and gilt frame with an inner linen slip. There are scattered areas of craquelure to the painting commensurate with age, as shown in close ups The paint layer is very stable overall. The frame is in excellent vintage condition.

  • Naturelle

    Sold

    SOLD.

    A stunning mid century figure study executed in oil, painted onto board.

    The artist has beautifully captured the form of the figure’s body, using a subtle range of beige, pink and nude tones, skilfully blending the figure into the background yet keeping her form distinct from the scene.

    This very masterful study features broad and gestural brushstrokes, creating texture and three dimensionality while still maintaining its wonderfully delicate nature.

    This small yet powerful oil painting is housed in a very complementary gilt frame. There is a very small area of surface loss to the top edge of the painting, as shown in close ups, but this does not detract from the overall attractiveness of the piece. There is very minor scuffing to the frame.

  • Pensive Nude

    Sold

    SOLD.

    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.

    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.

  • 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.
