Lake in Light


A very quaint and atmospheric lakeside composition, painted in oil onto canvas and dated 1939 on the reverse.

Broad, textural brushstrokes fill the canvas in an array of pastel colours, wonderfully capturing the effect of the sunlight on the lake landscape. A red and orange lake house punctuates the centre of the composition, its reflection cast on the still waters below. The house sits amidst a backdrop of mountains which have been painted in blues and purples. There is a beautiful harmony and cohesiveness in the palette of this composition, with several colours repeating in various areas of the canvas.

This oil on canvas is housed a lovely nude painted distressed frame. The painting is in very good vintage condition. There appears to be an area of restoration to the sky area of the painting but this is only evident on the reverse – this restoration is not visible on the front. The frame has areas of loss, mostly to the top corner of the frame, as shown in photos, but this is in keeping with the overall vintage charm of the piece.
