Balcony Sightings


A soothing and restful mid-century modern painting, executed in oil onto canvas by the established Swedish artist Fabian Lundqvist (1913-1989), whose works have been represented in many public collections in Sweden.

The painting depicts a female figure standing in a balcony. She is stylishly dressed in patterned clothing with intricate detailing, as well as a striking yellow hat. She stands elegantly, and is back-facing the viewer, lending an air of mystery to the composition. The home is well-decorated as we get a glimpse of a striped curtain as well as a striped cloth resting on the ledge of the balcony, and a pot resting on a table.

The balcony overlooks rows of white buildings of differing heights, that stretch out into the distance. The artist has purposely simplified the architectural details of the buildings into blocks of contrasting shades of white and brown.

The colour palette of the painting is limited to muted and earthy  shades of browns and white. These gentle colours create a subdued atmosphere, evoking a sense tranquility. The brushstrokes in the painting are soft and gentle, creating a sense of calmness throughout the artwork, and enhancing its overall soothing aesthetic.

This oil on canvas is housed in a complementary slim gilt frame. Both painting and frame are in excellent vintage condition.
