While there he visited Fernand Léger’s studio and was influenced by his approach.  Initially inspired by cubism he later developed more as a surrealist artist in the 1930s and was part of a group of artists in Halmstad group who followed that approach including Waldemar Lorentzon, Axel and Eric Olson each of whom went on to become notable artists in their own right. He exhibited widely in Sweden where is is well-known and collected as a leading Swedish modernist. His work is represented in the Museum of Modern art in Stockholm, Gothenburg Art Museum and the Malmo Museum.

    This mid century print is housed behind glass in a very complementary metal frame. There is a very small crack in the glass to the lower left which is visible upon close inspection. It does not detract from the artwork and the overall appeal of the piece, which is in good condition otherwise.

  • Winter Boats

    Sold

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A large and very atmospheric mid century oil composition, painted in 1967.

    Two boats sit quietly on the ice, a static but powerful image. The red and black of the boats contrast starkly against the white and light blue of the ice. Thickly applied layers of paint capture the robustness and depth of the winter ground. We can imagine the artist moving his paint brush in a dance across the surface, building up the layers slowly but surely.  Two thirds of the composition is dedicated purely to the white icy ground, giving us a sense of the expansiveness of the wintery landscape.

    The painting is housed in a stunning wide profile frame with an inner gilt border that further illuminates the painting. Both painting and frame are in good vintage condition.

    Size: 64.5 x 74 cm (including frame)

  • Spanish Evening

    Sold

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    An excellently executed mid century semi abstract oil on board, painted in 1959 by well known  artist Ivar Morsing.

    Three figures working the land are depicted against an abstract background. A deep, rich and vivid palette of browns, orange, black and greens give this picture its punch. Contrasting blocks of saturated colour have been applied to the surface, illustrating the artist’s cubist influences, which he is most known for. This gorgeous semi-abstract painting in oil would certainly stand out in any interior, whether traditional or modern.

    The painting is beautifully framed in deep blue frame with an ornate gilt inner section. The frame really enhances the piece and brings out the rich colours in the painting. Both frame and painting are in excellent vintage condition.

  • 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.

  • Pears

    Sold

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A brilliantly executed  mid century still life in oil, painted by the established artist Eric Cederberg.

    Thick swirls of creamy paint form the background of the top half of the composition, and then below this we have a darker brown area with outlines in thick strokes that mimic the appearance of wood grain. Contrasted against this earthy palette are three bright and vivid pears, still connected to their branches and their ochre leaves. There is a beautiful balance to the horizontal composition, which Cederberg is known to be adept at achieving.

    Cederberg was a Swedish artist who made his debut on the art world in Helsingborg in 1922.  Later he participated in the  Skåne Art Association Exhibition in 1926 and the  Swedish Public Art Society exhibition in Stockholm in 1941. He is represented in several public collections in Sweden.

    This painting is housed in an absolutely gorgeous champagne frame with a wide profile. The painting has some scattered craquelure but is stable overall and is in good condition otherwise. The frame is in good vintage condition.

  • Still Life with Daffodils

    Sold

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A striking yet homely still life in oil, painted in a modernist manner.

    A blue vase filled with daffodils sits alongside a potted plant and some fruit.  The objects sit atop a table by a windowsill, with a patterned curtain to the right side of the composition. The artist has used deep, rich, and vivid colours which have been applied to the surface with broad, and distinct brushstrokes. The artist has captured the morning light beautifully, using an array of colours to depict the effect of light against the objects, the table, the wall and the window sill. The distinctive blues, greens and yellows repeat themselves throughout the composition, creating a very harmonious and satisfying still life picture.

    This oil painting is housed in a simple silver frame which suits it very well and complements its palette. Both painting and frame are in very good vintage condition.

  • Boys

    Sold

    SOLD.

    An excellently executed semi abstract mid century portrait, painted in oil onto board.

    The artist has used a vivid and bold colour palette, incorporating areas of thick impasto for added effect and three dimensionality. The features of the figures have been left out, focusing instead on the shape and form of them, giving this painting a timelessness. There is an innocence to the way the artist has painted the figures, capturing the youth of the figures.

    The painting is housed in a silver frame which has an inner linen lining. Both painting and frame are in good vintage condition. The frame has some very minor scuffs which are only noticeable upon close inspection.

  • Fortify

    Sold

    SOLD.

    A large and very striking mid century abstract composition painted in oil.

    Our eyes are initially drawn towards the right side of the composition, where darker, wider and more controlled brushstrokes mark the canvas vertically. As our eyes move leftwards, these strokes become looser, less controlled and more discordant. The composition is a skilful balance of spontaneity and tight control, and conveys strong emotion and perhaps the inner impulses of the artist.

    The painting is housed in a dark gilt frame which suits it very well. The painting is in excellent vintage condition. The frame has some marks, mainly to the lower edge, but these do not at all detract from the main painting.

    Size: 57 x 91 cm (including frame)

    Free domestic (UK) shipping. As this painting is very large, it is unlikely that we will be able to ship it internationally. If you are very interested and are located outside of the UK, please contact us and we will see what we can do.

  • The Crossing

    Sold

    SOLD.

    A confidently executed and beautifully textured mid century landscape with reindeer, painted in oil onto board.

    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 thick, 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). That being said, the artist has managed to strike a find balance between an emotional response and capturing the scene before him and how it looked. The combination of the texture and colouring of this painting makes it a stand out piece.

    The painting is also housed in an excellent castleton green frame with an inner white border. The painting is in excellent vintage condition. There are some losses to the lower section of the inner white border of the frame that are only visible upon close inspection. These losses do not detract from the overall attractiveness of the piece.

  • The Lane

    Sold

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A large and very well executed modernist landscape in oil, painted in 1995.

    Simple in composition yet complex in execution, the artist has used large planes of contrasting colour to create a sense of depth and space in the picture. Layers of colour have been blended skilfully, giving the paintings its bright and luminous quality. The artist has chosen to focus on form, shape and line in this composition, bringing our attention to the way the different elements (the house, the trees, the field and the lane) play with each other and almost fit together like a jigsaw puzzle.

    This very satisfying oil painting is housed in a gilt frame which complements it very well. The painting is in excellent vintage condition. There is some light scuffing to the left side of the frame, as well as a small area of paint loss to the lower right corner of the frame (as seen in close up photo). Neither of these imperfections detract from the overall attractiveness of the piece.

  • Autumn Day

    Sold

    Free UK Shipping Only.

    A large and earthy mid century landscape, painted in oil onto canvas.

    Expressive, gestural brushstrokes fill the canvas, with textured strokes creating areas of impasto that have been layered over smoother swathes of colour. A rich, autumnal palette has been used, and although no realistic details of the trees have been depicted, we get a palpable sense of the lushness of the forest. Through the use of contrasting colour the artist has skilfully conveyed a sense of depth and three dimensionality to the forested landscape.

    This oil on canvas is in very good vintage condition. It is housed in a gilt frame with red undertones, and the frame illuminates the painting. Please note that some glare is present in the photographs.

    Size: 64 x 84 cm (including frame)

  • Beach Day

    Sold

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    An original mid century semi-abstract coastal composition, painted in oil onto canvas.

    The artist has added an aggregate to the paint, giving the painting a very textured effect. In addition to this, he has used thick swirls of paint creating areas of impasto which add to the three dimensionality of the painting. The gestural strokes give the painting a sense of movement, capturing the physicality of the wind and waves of the seaside.

    Vivid colours fill the composition, from the orangey yellows of the sand, to the blues and whites of the ocean, as well as the the blueish greys of the sky. The artist has painted an outline of a figure to the left side of the composition, and has used a very interesting technique by making the figure almost translucent, as if he or she is almost at one with the seascape.

    This oil on canvas is housed in its original mid century gilt frame with an inner linen lining. The painting is in excellent vintage condition. The frame has some general wear and scuff, commensurate with age.

  • Beyond the Trees

    Sold

    SOLD.

    A luscious and striking semi-abstract mid century landscape in oil, painted in 1961 by well known Swedish artist Ivar Morsing.

    In this picture, deep, rich, vivid greens juxtapose beautifully against the yellows and creams of the foreground and sky.

    Though no realistic details are present, the artist skilfully conveys the forms of the landscape such that we are able to discern them. Thick swirls of green in a range of tones make up the forms of the trees, creating areas of impasto that add texture and three dimensionality to the painting. Morsing punctuates the composition with a light coloured building in the distance, giving our eyes a focal point as well as adding a distinct sense of depth that lead our eyes in and around the picture.

    There is a palpable ‘softness’ to the way Morsing has painted the landscape, which is distinctive of his style (to see other paintings by Morsing in our collection click here).

    This oil on canvas is in very good vintage condition. It is housed in its original mid century gilt frame red undertones. The frame has some general wear and paint loss, commensurate with age.

  • 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.

  • Summer Window

    £430

    Sold

    Free UK Shipping Only.

    A very large and well executed semi-abstract still life, painted in oil onto canvas.

    The painting features fauvist elements, such as the unusual juxtaposition of colours as well as the highly gestural application of paint.

    A bowl and a candelabra sit along a windowsill with 3 large window panes that look out onto a plant filled view as well as  a gate and street line. The artist has skilfully used his paint and colours sparingly, yet has managed to convey such an array of elements within his abstract and gestural strokes.

    There is a wonderful diaphanous quality to this painting which makes it such a unique statement piece.

    The painting is housed in a simple oak frame which complements it brilliantly. The painting is in excellent vintage condition. The wood frame has some minor scuffs.

  • White Winter

    Sold

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore..

    A semi abstract mid century oil on canvas of a winter landscape, painted in 1957.

    In this painting the artist immediately draws our attention to the expansiveness of the snowy fields by dedicating two thirds of the composition to white, snow covered pasture. In the horizon was see a spread of farmhouses, whose scale is tiny compared to the vastness of the fields. There is a quietness and stillness to the painted scene, which has a very calming and restful effect.

    This oil on canvas has light scattered areas of craquelure across the painting commensurate with its age, but the paint is in very stable condition. It is housed in its original mid-century silver frame with red undertones that that has light wear and minor scuffs, but in keeping with its overall look.

    A large picturesque and restful winter landscape composition in oil, painted in 1955.

  • Alpine

    Sold

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A gorgeously expressive mid century landscape view in oil, painted in 1952 onto canvas.

    This painting succeeds wonderfully at bringing some of the outside in. The artist has used gestural, painterly brushstrokes to depict alpine trees standing tall with a blue sky beyond them.  The artist celebrates the medium of oil, using texture and movement to draw our attention to the physicality of the paint.

    This mid century piece would look wonderful in an interior space as a calming spot to rest one’s eyes on, reminding us of the cool and fresh air of the alpine forest.

    The painting is housed in a distressed off-white decorative frame. The painting is in excellent condition. The frame has some general wear but this is very much in keeping with its overall style.

  • Cedar

    Sold

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A large and restful mid century oil landscape , painted onto board.

    A set of farmhouses sit within a large pastoral landscape with a wooded treeline in the distance, set under the golden light of the sun. The artist has captured a panoramic view of the landscape before him by dedicating a large proportion of the painted surface to the sky. The soft palette of cream and light blue set a wonderful contrast against the darker, earthier palette of the land below, where the artist has used rougher and more distinct brushstrokes to capture the effects of the elements on the pasture.

    The painting is housed within a simple thin gilt frame which illuminates the painting beautifully. The painting has a tiny area of surface paint loss (please refer to the close up photo) which is visible upon close inspection but does not detract from the overall attractiveness of the piece. Otherwise, both frame and painting are in very good vintage condition.

  • Coastal Rocks

    Sold

    SOLD.

    A charming and picturesque modernist style oil painting, presenting a coastal landscape composition of rock formation and greenery by the sea.

    This oil on board is housed in a lovely grainy light wood frame that complements the painting very well. Both artwork and frame are in excellent vintage condition.

  • Father

    Sold

    Free UK Shipping Only.

    Part of our ‘family series’ collection, this very large mid century oil has been painted onto board and depicts a standing figure painted in a modernist style.

    Large planes and blocks of colour in a deep and rich palette have been applied to the canvas, with a distinct focus on the formal qualities of shape, form and colour. The artist has used angled lines and geometric shapes to compose the figure. He has left out realistic details, and has  abstracted the portrait he has painted. He celebrates the medium of oil, leaving visible the strokes of his large paint brush, as well as creating textured areas of impasto that contrast with the smoother planes of painted areas.

    This large modernist portrait has been excellently executed, and would make a very prominent statement piece in any interior.

    The painting is housed in its original mid century grey wood frame with an inner silver window. The painting is in excellent vintage condition. The frame has some minor scuffs but is in good condition overall. Due to the large size and heaviness of the board, the frame will need to be handled carefully when hanging. Please note that there is some glare in the photographs as the images were taken under natural light.

  • Flock of Sheep

    Sold

    SOLD.

    A calm and gorgeous mid 20th century oil painting depicting a flock of sheep in a nature.

    The soft pastel and earthy pastel colours create an air of serenity; and the precise and lightly textured brushstrokes imbue the painting with a tinge of vitality.

    Overall, the varying shades and brushstrokes in this work flow impeccably –  leading our eyes gently from the foreground where the sheep are huddled together, to the background where the vast open land, mountains and blue sky lie beyond in the horizon.

    This oil on canvas is housed in a grey frame with an inner gilt window that complements the painting wonderfully. Both painting and frame are in excellent vintage condition.

  • Horseman

    Sold

    SOLD.

    This mid century geometric abstract is painted in oil onto board and presented within an off white slip and a gilt frame.

    Drawing on a distinctly modernist ethos, this painting is reminiscent of works by artists such as Pablo Picasso. We see a removal of ‘superfluous’ elements of both animal and human to reach a simple linear abstraction. The artist has intentionally chosen not to depict the figures realistically, and has instead reduced them down into shapes and lines. Simple yet effective outlines connect seamlessly, standing out against a vivid background of reds, greens, and whites to create this striking composition.

    The painting is housed in a excellent frame that suits the picture brilliantly. It has an off white slip and a gilt frame with hints of red. Both painting and frame are in excellent vintage condition.

  • Houses on a Hill

    Sold

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A wonderfully textured mid-century landscape oil painting, depicting a row of houses on a hill top.

    Largely abstract in composition, the artist focuses on colour contrasts to create a sense of depth and space and has used blocks of muted subdued tones including shades of taupe and green to form this composition.

    Upon closer inspection of the painting,  we can notice how layers of colours have been skilfully and thoughtfully applied – using cobalt blue as the starting undertone colour on the right, and burnt orange on the left.

    The artist has also used the impasto technique, using broad and expressive brushstrokes to create thick and creamy layers of paint to form a raw textural and three-dimensional effect.

    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 board is in excellent vintage condition. It is housed in its original champagne gold frame that has areas of marks commensurate with its age.

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