A large and striking mid century oil painting of a standing figure, painted onto canvas in a distinctly modernist style.
The artist has focussed in on a single figure – a man stands in an alley, looking straight on at us. What would normally be quite confronting is softened and made friendly – the man stands casually with his hands in his pockets. Although his expression is undiscernible, we get a sense that this is a friendly and familiar encounter, someone we know, a father, a grandfather, an uncle.
The figure is painted against an abstract background, but we can just about make out buildings on either side. There seems to be a luminosity and reflection in the way the artist has painted the background, perhaps a suggestion that it has just rained.
This large and beautiful semi-abstract portrait is housed in its original mid century frame. The painting is in excellent vintage condition. The frame has some age toning to the fabric, as shown in the photos, but this is commensurate with its age.
Size: 87.5 x 60 cm (including frame)
