Autumn Village | Village de Moselle
This artwork is so unique as it is painted on not one, but two sides!
On one front, a cheerful autumnal landscape scene that is painted in a fauvist manner is presented. One is captivated by the striking use of strong vivid colours, and the use of bold and distinctive brushwork that certainly enhances the work’s emotional power.
On the other reverse, a stunning 1950s modernist painting of a French Village is presented. Using a wonderfully unique colour palette, it instills the pictured French village with so much life and character. The artist has chosen not to paint any figures in this picture, but the buildings have been painted in such an expressive, vibrant and textured manner that they almost double as people – the bold outlines and different coloured facades give each structure its own personality. Even the fencing in the forefront has been given close attention by the artist. The bold and gestural brushstrokes in the forefront of the painting contrast elegantly with the lighter and more muted palette of the sky.
There is so much to look at and notice in the entirety of this artwork – a delightful array of colours, textures and structures on both sides.
This 1950s oil on board is in good vintage condition for its age, and is well presented in wooden frame. The front is exposed, and the back has a UV-protected glass cover – and you can choose to display either side.
