Seated in Blue


A very well executed mid century oil portrait, painted onto canvas and framed in its original mid century frame.

A female figure in an azure blue dress sits on a bright yellow chair. All realistic details have been omitted, drawing our attention instead to painterly elements such as shape, form and colour. Some aspects of this painting are reminiscent of figurative works by Modgliani, such as the elongation of the figure. The artist lengthens her body, keeping her torso parallel with the back of the chair, which has also been elongated, drawing our eyes downwards and creating a lovely sense of rhythm, ease, and restfulness.  Behind the sitter we see a patchwork of colour, applied so effectively that it both harmonises and connects the picture, yet still allows the figure and chair to stand out. The combination of flattened space, underlying shapes and colour harmony make up this very well executed modernist portrait.

This oil on canvas is housed in its original mid century gilt wood frame which complements the painting brilliantly. Both painting and frame are in excellent vintage condition.
