An outstanding large painting featuring the Old Port of Marseille, France, painted in 1962.
Soft, short and swift brushstrokes have been used to paint this charming scene where boats and yachts fill the port, with buildings depicted faintly in the distant background.
This artwork draws on a range of modernist concepts and influences including cubism and abstraction. Blocks of contrasting colours harmonise perfectly, giving to the various forms while creating a sense of depth and space.
The muted palette of this painting with its soft greys and blues create a gentle and pleasant effect on our senses, while at the same time reflecting the bustling heart of Marseille.
This oil on canvas is housed in a complementary wood frame with a fabric lines border and an inner gilt window. Both painting and frame are in very good vintage condition, with some typical ageing to the frame as shown in photos.
Size: 60 x 93 cm (including frame)
