An endearing mid 20th century painting of an intimate and well-decorated home setting.
An elderly lady sits on a small bench preparing food, as she waits for the pot to heat up in the large fire stove beside her.
The plethora of colours used in this work is remarkable, as well as the intricate detailing of the objects lying around which include the flower pots by the window still, the white pitcher beyond the open door, as well as the pots and pans, and a colourful rug on the floor. The door that is ajar adds a sense of openness to this painting – we feel welcomed into the space, without feeling trapped or enclosed.
It comes with a unique dark wood frame with evenly spaced divots, outlining the painting beautifully.
The canvas appears to have been previously removed from a backing or stretchers and re-laid on to board, fixed down with staples. Puncture marks from the previous framing method are visible around the outer edges of the canvas, as shown. The painting itself is in excellent condition with no paint loss, and so is the frame that it is housed in.
Size: 40 x 54 cm (including frame)
