A very well done mid century modernist portrait composition, executed in oil onto board.

A single seated figure sits alone, looking out as us viewers. Her expression is gentle, yet there seems to be a sternness about her – her hands sit clasped atop a table. Her elongated figure is reminiscent of Modigliani, but overall composition also brings to mind the painting ‘Whistler’s Mother’. She has that same steady gaze as well as an air of infinite patience.

Above her is a monochrome portrait of a male figure, which could be her late husband. Perhaps one of the most brilliant aspects of this painting is what is to her right – the netted voile curtains. The artist has captured the texture of it wonderfully, and we also see  little plant pot on the window sill which adds a homeliness to the painting.

Overall, the painting is brilliantly executed and exudes such a distinctive character.

This oil on board is housed in a dark gilt frame which suits it wonderfully. Both the painting and frame are in excellent vintage condition .
