A small and poignant mid century figurative oil portrait by the well-establish Swedish artist Ivar Morsing (1919-2009), whose works have been exhibited in public collections including the National Museum in Stockholm, Moderna Museet in Stockholm, Kalmar Museum and Jönköping Museum.

Executed in a semi-abstract manner, the composition presents a seated figure who is at rest. The artist has left out all realistic detail, using gentle yet expressive brushwork, and there is an overall softness to the way he has captured the scene. Despite the use of the very restrained warm colour palette, the artist has very skilfully imbued the painting with a luminosity, which is further enhanced by the gilt frame that surrounds it.

This oil on canvas board is housed in a complementary gilt frame. The frame corners have a few small losses, but overall the painting and frame are in very good vintage condition.

Size: 28 x 26 cm (including frame)
