Lady in a Black Scarf


A very well executed mid century modernist portrait of a lady in a black headscarf, painted onto board in 1957.

A restrained yet immensely well balanced colour palette has been used, drawing attention to the form of the subject.  Beautifully expressive brushstrokes sweep in and around the figure in pastel colours, creating a translucent, diaphanous effect. The black headscarf that wraps around the figure’s head acts as a focal point and draws the eye to the figure’s face first. Our attention is then drawn downwards  through the use of converging downward pointing brushwork in blue.

The figure’s stern expression adds character and interest to the piece, and would make for a brilliant statement piece in any interior. The light, soothing colour palette and wood frame would blend in very well in both classic and modern interiors.

The painting is housed in its original mid century frame with an inner white border. The painting is in very good vintage condition. The corner joints of the frame have widened slightly but are stable and do no detract from the overall attractiveness of the piece.
