Portrait in Purple


Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

A semi abstract mid century portrait in oil, painted in 1943.

This unique portrait features an abstracted figure with his hands together, depicted in a painterly style. Loose and broad brushstrokes have been applied in several layers, created a wonderful depth, complexity and illumination to the painting. As we take the time to study the painting, the varying layers slowly reveal themselves, giving us an insight into the artist’s process.

Just as unique as the painting is the frame in which it is housed in. Set in a purple-blue frame with decorative indents evenly spaced around the frame, it adds a real element of interest to the painting and also complements the colour palette of the painting beautifully.

Both painting and frame are in good vintage condition. There is some minor wear to the inner window of the frame but this certainly does not detract from the overall attractiveness of the piece.
