Early Morning


A brilliantly executed mid century modernist seascape composition, painted in oil onto canvas and dated 1966.

This calming, early morning scene of a fisherman out on his boat just exudes tranquillity. There is a gentle, delicate quality to the way the artist has applied his paint, with each stroke carefully done , some as short light strokes, some as little dots, and some as longer and drawn out. Through the composition we get the sense that the artist is trying to capture the atmosphere of morning at low tide, with the rocks peeking out above the water. His palette is subdued – light greys, whites and blues make up the majority of the painting.

This oil on canvas is housed in a lovely wooden frame with linen border that suits it very well.  There is some very light craquelure to the upper right, but the paint layer remains very stable. There is some minor scuffing to the frame, and an area of age toning to the lower edge of the linen border. However the overall appearance is very good.
