A semi-abstract mid century geometric painting in oil, dated 1954.
Here the artist has captured an industrial marine structure, the pontoon crane. The artist has flattened the composition into sections of flat coloured planes, as well as dark angular lines. Through the use of these geometric shapes and lines, the artist has conveyed the ‘industrial’ sense of the scene through these formal qualities, rather than through a realistic depiction of the crane, pontoon and harbour buildings. This is very much a modernist ethos, where artists painting in this period were incorporating the aesthetic of the ‘machine’ and other industrialist activities into their art.
This oil painting is housed in a robust solid wood frame, which suits it very well. The painting is in very good vintage condition. The oak frame has some general scuffing and a small indent to the left and right edges (as seen in photos) but this does not detract from its overall attractiveness.
Size: 39 x 58 cm (including frame)
