    Sold

    SOLD

    Free shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A brilliantly executed mid century modernist vintage oil on canvas of a landscape composition.

    This picture carries with it that wonderful feeling of being in the countryside and the sense of peace and serenity that comes with it.

Behind the village we see a lake, a wooded area as well as mountain. The artist has used a very earthy palette of rich brown, green and red. Broad and expressive brushstrokes gives the piece its painterly effect, and adds texture and depth.

    Sold

    An outstanding modernist style composition of a church window, executed in oil onto board.

    Depicting four figures in a prayerful gesture, the painting models the appearance of a stained glass window, whereby the overall composition has been segmented into fragments of different shapes and sizes.

    Large, sweeping, gestural brushstrokes fill the surface, creating a palpable sense of movement and dynamism.

  • Colour Coast

    Sold

    SOLD.

    An energetic and expressive mid-century oil on canvas depicting an abstract coastal landscape scene.

    Simple yet effective in its composition, we see a scenic view of a coastal trail with hills in the background. The artist has simplified this scene down to planes of contrasting colours with thin blue outlines, and intentionally leaving areas of the canvas exposed. Through the use of vibrant colours and swift painterly brushstrokes, the artwork has a very uplifting quality to it.

    This painting is housed in a well-suited silver frame with an inner linen lining. Both painting and frame are in excellent vintage condition.

  • Expecting

    Sold

    Free shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A rather charming mid century modernist portrait composition in oil.

    Here the artist has paid full attention to the sitter – an expectant mother. The painting has a timeless quality to it – we are not given any context of place or time. Yet the paradox here is that we know this is capturing a very particular moment in time and a very particular scenario that is relatable to many. The artist has not included the sitter’s facial details, choosing instead to focus on her form, and the way the light hits her body and her dress.

    This beautifully sentimental painting has a quiet strength to it, capturing a very special moment in time. It is housed in a lovely gilt frame. The painting is in very good vintage condition. The frame has some areas which have been painted over, as seen in the close up photos.

  • Green Land

    £455

    Sold

    SOLD.

    A beautifully expansive and panoramic mid century oil, painted onto board.

    A row of farmhouses lines the lower section of the picture, followed by fields above that pan out in to the distant horizon. We get a sense that the fields are never-ending, and that this calming scene before us goes on undisturbed for miles and miles.

    The artist has used a restrained colour palette, reserving the bolder greens and browns for the lower section of the picture, then getting increasingly lighter as he moves up the picture, until the sky which mimics the lightest greens of the fields.

    There is a palpable sense of serenity and restfulness with this picture – the type of feeling you get when you’re out in the rural countryside, away from the hustle and bustle of city life..

    This oil on board is in very good vintage condition. It is housed in its original mid-century silver frame, that illuminates the painting. There are minor areas of scuff on the frame.

    A large and striking mid century modernist semi abstract still life in oil, painted in 1955.

    Large and gestural sweeping brushstrokes contrast against thin, angular outlines in black. 2 bottles in the middle ground are discernible, alluding to the fact that the scene pictured before us is a still life of objects on a table. The artist employs some cubist elements too, flattening out the scene and incorporating multiple views to create this abstracted and fragmented scene.

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

    Sold

    The artwork displays a landscape composition of Åmotsdal, a valley and small village in Norway, where 2 houses are depicted in nature with mountains in the background.

    This oil on board is housed in a well-suited grey frame that has an inner linen lining. The painting is in very good vintage condition. There are areas of chips and scuffs on the frame, particularly at the bottom (as shown in the images).

  • Around the Fire

    Sold

    SOLD.

    A warm and embracing mid century modernist oil composition, painted onto canvas.

    Falling under the umbrella of ‘genre painting’ or ‘narrative art’, this wonderful painting tells us a story. A group of people sit around a fire, watching a man in a hat play the guitar. Our view point places us (the viewer) very much a within the scene, as if we too are sitting in this circle, listening to the musician. In the forefront we see a couple with the man’s arm around his partner. The figures facing are painted in golden light, emitting the warm glow from the crackling fire in front of them.  The colours of the fire can also be seen again the musician’s hat, face and guitar.  The background is an cobalt blue, capturing the essence of the night sky.

    The painting is housed in a complementary silver frame. Both painting and frame are in very good vintage condition.

  • Black & Yellow

    Sold

    SOLD.

    A small but brilliantly executed mid century abstract still life in oil, by Swedish artist Ivar Morsing, painted in 1956.

This gorgeous semi-abstract painting in oil would certainly stand out in any interior, whether traditional or modern.

    The painting is housed in a dark grey tray frame which suits the style and palette of the painting very well. The painting has some slight losses to the outer edges (as shown in photos), but this does not detract from its overall attractiveness.

  • Coastal Walk

    Sold

    Free shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A very restful 20th century modernist coastal scene, painted in oil onto canvas in 1987.

    The composition depicts a picturesque view of a coastline- with lush greenery on hill surrounded by a calm blue ocean.

    The painting demonstrates great depth and width – brought forth by multi-directional broad and painterly brushstrokes that sweep across the painting in an expressive manner, as well as the use of a tranquil colour palette that builds up from left to right, drawing our eyes across, with its richest colours to the right of the composition.

    This painting is housed in a dark brown frame with an inner gilt window. The painting is in very good vintage condition, and the frame has very minor areas of scuffing which do not at all detract from the overall attractiveness of the piece.

  • Fishermen at Dawn

    Sold

    SOLD.

    A very well executed and distinctly mid century modernist oil composition, painted onto board.

    With cubist tendencies, the artist has fragmented the scene into a series of curved shapes and lines, almost as though we are looking at the scene through broken glass.  The structure of the nets that the fishermen are laying out continues into clothes of the men as well as the surrounding sea and sky. This modernist ethos focuses on formal qualities such as shape, line, form, colour and pattern. The recurring lines and patterns make it fun to spot particular details that could easily go unnoticed unless observed closely, such as  the birds in the sky as well as the boats to the left of the composition.

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

This simple yet very effective composition would make a perfect resting spot for our eyes, and would suit a bedroom or living room area very well.

    Sold

    SOLD.

    A skilfully executed scenic road landscape composition, executed in oil in 1962.

    There is a charming contrast between the top and bottom half of the painting. In the background – we see lush forestry in the distance set against moody and darker tones.  On the other hand, the foreground of the painting has an array of colourful earthy shades and has more lively atmosphere.

  • South of France

    Sold

    SOLD.

    A very pleasant and gentle mid century modernist abstract landscape composition of the South of France, executed in oil onto canvas, painted in 1952.

    This abstract landscape composition has been simplified down to coloured shapes in light and soft pastel colours including shades of oranges and greens. As we spend time to study the colours and play on geometric shapes, we can discern what appears to be trees and houses situated on a hilly landscape.

  • Still Life with Jugs

    Sold

    SOLD.

    A small yet very striking mid century modernist still life composition, painted in oil onto board.

    In this well-executed and detailed work of art, there is a strong focus on colours, shapes and form.

    Using a muted earthy colour palette, the artist has thoughtfully used contrasting blocks of colours to illustrate two jugs set against a similarly-coloured background. The differing shades help to create a sense of space as well as make the three-dimensionality of the objects more pronounced.

    Fine and smooth brushstrokes have been used, and in addition to the stunning colours, there is a sense of warmth and gentleness instilled in the painting.

    This oil on board is housed in a  mid century wood frame with an inner linen lining. There are some marks and minor paint loss at the top of the painting (as it might have been reframed), however the work is in very good vintage condition overall. There are some very minor age spots to the frame.

  • The Farmer’s House

    Sold

    SOLD.

    A brilliantly executed mid century cubist composition of an interior scene, painted in oil onto canvas in 1956.

    In this painting, the artist has played with angles, shapes, patterns and colours. The space has been flattened, and perspective skewed. As a result, we have a very unique and intriguing composition before us, that allows us to look at the everyday objects within it in a very different way and notice things that would otherwise go unnoticed. This fragmented and abstracted image of an interior emphasis the two-dimensional flatness of the canvas instead of creating the illusion of depth.

    The painting is housed in a wood frame that complements it well. Both painting and frame are in very good vintage condition.

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A rich and lively palette including blues and greens have been used to paint the objects, as they sit against a beautiful peach backdrop filled with multiple undertones. The artist displays his painterly skills by using different hues of each shade and blending them well together to achieve a sense of three-dimensionality for each object.

    The painting has been well-executed in an expressionist manner –  with dynamic and detailed brushstrokes lending the artwork an impressive visual and vibrant appeal.

    This oil on board is in very good vintage condition. It is housed in a well-suited light wood frame, and there is a very small area of surface paint loss to the the right edge of the frame, but this does not detract from its overall attractiveness and is in lined to its vintage feel.
