This expressive and atmospheric mid century oil on board depicts an abstracted coastal scene with figures. There is a sketch-like quality to the painting, with the figures and structures outlined in thin black strokes, which were probably done free hand on the spot as the artist sketched ‘en plein air’. A distinctly cool colour palette has been used, including blue, green and purple, imbuing the painting with a calming and relaxing feel. The abstracted, suffused nature of the painting gives us the sense that this is almost a hazy memory, perhaps of good times spent by the coast. There is also a rawness to the quality of the painting – we can see the distinct and coarse brush that the artist has used in many areas, where it has also created areas of impasto (where the paint is thick enough to stand proud of the surface), creating a very textured surface.
The painting is housed in a thin gilt frame, which suits the painting very well. Both painting and frame are in excellent vintage condition.
Size: 50 x 70 cm (including frame)
