A beguiling and very elegant oil painting on canvas, painted in 1983.
The artist has done an architectural, sketch -like style painting of a church, using a series of angled lines to capture the structure of the building. The artist has condensed the form into an almost abstract depiction, leaving out all realistic details. He has created a distinctly raw and expressionist composition, through the use of a very minimalist palette as well as the unevenness of the medium. He has combined areas of impasto where thicker paint has been used, with areas which are much coarser and that leave the substrate showing through. What at first glance appears to be quick sketch like drawing, is in fact a very well executed and considered composition, whose colours create an illuminating and diaphanous effect.
This gorgeous painting is housed in a simple white frame with an inner gilt window that draws out the colours in the painting further. Both painting and frame are in very good vintage condition.
Size: 68.5 x 61 cm (including frame)
