Coast in Colour
A striking mid century coastal scape, painted in oil onto canvas. The artist appears to have taken inspiration from the modernist concept of fauvism, which is a style characterised by strong non-naturalistic colours and bold brushwork. The forms of the subjects (in this case the land, trees, sea and sky) have been simplified, making them appear quite abstract. The artist has also used complementary/opposing colours side by side, which make the painting look brighter.
This oil is housed in its original mid century off-white frame with a gilt border and an inner white slip. Both painting and frame are in excellent vintage condition.
Size: 55 x 64 cm (including frame)
