Atlas (I)


A soothing and minimalistic mid-century abstract painting, executed in oil onto thick card by Swedish painter Hans Osswald (1919-1983), whose works have been exhibited at the National Museum in Stockholm, Malmö Museum as well as The Brooklyn Museum.

Created with a masterful technique, the artist has skilfully employed broad brushstrokes, applying layers of colours to build up texture and dimension to the work.

Dominating the canvas is a body of white that evokes tranquillity, and emerging in the centre are richer and striking shades of blue that gives the painting its punch. The artist has also allowed the orangey-brown backing substrate to come through, adding another element of rawness to the work.

This oil is housed in a complementary wood frame. The painting has some tiny surface paint losses and marks as shown in the close ups, and the frame has some light marks too, but the overall appearance is good.

There is a second painting of the same size which would go perfectly with this one, in case you wanted a pair. You can view it here.
