A very pleasant mid 20th century oil on canvas presenting a magnificent panoramic view of a park and the city.
The sky is blue, and the air is crisp; as 2 friends are enjoying their picnic in the park whilst admiring the stunning view that overlooks the city.
The artist has used a vibrant colour palette, especially multiple shades of green, that imbues the work with so much life and vitality. The brushstrokes used are short and broad, with each brush mark visible and distinct.
Furthermore, the composition is highly well-balanced – with the area of lush greenery and blue sky having equal visual weight.
This oil on canvas is in good vintage condition. There are minor areas of craquelure (fine cracks in the paint) as seen in the photos, but the paint layer is stable overall. Cracks forming within the paint layer is natural as the paint starts to age. Craquelure is not in itself harmful to the painting, and can add to the ‘quality’ of patina that only age can bring.
The work housed in a robust sage green frame that complements the artwork very well. There are some marks on the frame; and as it is its original frame, its joints are slightly delicate, but nevertheless, holds the painting well.
Size: 67 x 78 cm (including frame)
