Cubist Figures


A very unique mid century portrait, painted in oil onto canvas.

Cubist in nature, the artist has taken an interesting perspective in the portrayal of two figures. Their forms have been flattened, and the painting has a strong focus on line, pattern, colour and angular shapes.

Through the use of distinct and repeated brushstrokes in one particular direction, the artist has used flat angular shapes to represent the different sides of the figures to suggest their three-dimensional structures.

Through the use of a monochromatic palette with unique hints of blue and brown, the tonal gradation from darker moody tones to lighter shades as well as the use of bold outlines also allows the figures to be more three dimensional.

This oil on canvas is housed in a light blue painted distressed frame that suits the painting wonderfully. There is some scattered craquelure present as shown but the paint layer is stable overall. There are minor scuffs to the frame which is in keeping with the style. Overall the painting and frame are both in very good vintage condition.

Size: 77 x 66 cm (including frame)
