An absolutely stunning mid 20th century oil painting of a female nude on a lounge chair in a reclined position.
The female figure is well-composed and has an air of confidence. Her hair is styled in a bun, without a single strand out of place. At work, she is a woman of power, and she has just returned home after a long day of negotiating deals, wanting to unwind.
The viewer is unable to make eye contact, as she is faced away gazing to the distance, and appears to be caught up in her thoughts, and not wishing to be interrupted.
Her body recognises that it is time to unwind and leave one’s worries behind, as she is sat in a relaxed manner – with her slender legs stretched out, and her hands laid across the arm rests.
This artwork was done by Carl Gunne (1893-1979), whose works are displayed in museums across Helsinki, Antwerp and Budapest.
It is signed and dated to the lower left, and is complemented by its gilt frame.
Size: 33 x 56cm (including frame)
Both painting and frame are in excellent vintage condition.
