Charming Town


A charming and very pleasant modernist oil townscape, painted by the established Swedish artist Stig Wernheden (1921-1997), whose works have been represented at public collections in Sweden including the Moderna Museet, Malmö Museum, Snuff & Match Museum, Ystad Art Museum and Malmö City Hall.

Featuring a scenic view of buildings and trees, the composition depicts a group of figures huddled together with some indiscernible colourful items, as they congregate in the middle of the town.

Painted with a modernist ethos, the artist has used flat blocks of contrasting colours to create a sense of space and depth. All realistic details have been omitted, and our attention is drawn to painterly elements such as shape, form, brushstroke and colour.

A combination of lightly textured brushstrokes as well as warm tones including shades of blue, green white and brown have been used, adding a very soothing and relaxing effect to the painting.

This oil on canvas is housed in a complementary linen-lined frame with an inner silver window. The painting is in excellent vintage condition, and there is a small loss to the top left of the frame edge.

Size: 53 x 79.5 cm (including frame)
