Figures in Colour


A playful and striking composition presenting 2 figures in a coloured backdrop, brilliantly executed in oil onto canvas and dated 1951.

Painted with a modernist ethos and containing elements of geometric abstraction, the artist has reconstructed the scene down to flat geometric shapes in contrasting colours to demonstrate a sense of depth, as well as bold outlines to highlight and emphasise form.

The painting is brimming with character as it contains a burst of lively colours, energetic brushstrokes, and the artist has interestingly used the reverse end of the brush handle to reveal areas of the canvas.

This oil on canvas is housed in a wide-profiled cream frame that has an intended distressed effect, as show in close ups. There are areas of ‘paint loss’ to the edges of the frame but we believe this to be part of the intended effect.  The lines to the left and right of the frame are where the joints of the frame meet, as shown on reverse. There is a small repair  to the top of the frame, as shown in close ups. However, it does not detract from the overall attractiveness of the piece. The painting is in very good vintage condition.
