Portrait of a Man


A brilliantly executed mid century modernist figure study in oil, painted on to canvas laid to board, and dated 1956.

Painted in a post impressionist manner, the artist has incorporated a highly personal use of colour and brushwork, directly expressing and capturing an emotional response. The male figure looks down, and not directly at us – the artist has captured him in a moment of thought and reflection. Using a minimal  yet very earthy palette of blues, browns and blacks, the artist has also chosen to focus on the angles of his hairline, facial features, coat and collar. The artist has also captured the way the light hits the figure brilliantly, creating this very well executed composition and showing off the artist’s mastery with his medium.

This oil painting is housed in a slim frame that complements the painting well. There is some wear to the edges of the painting, and to the frame which has some small losses as shown, but this is all in keeping with the overall style. Overall the painting and frame are both in good vintage condition.
