A wonderfully painted modernist composition of a female nude figure, skilfully executed in oil in 1942. The model is portrayed in a home setting, seated on a bench against a sanguine and green background. With her gaze facing away from the viewer, she is unaware and caught up in her own thoughts.
Expressive and swift brushstrokes have been executed in a confident manner. The artist demonstrates a deep understanding of the relationship of colours, and also of the human body. Not only has he captured the curves of her anatomy wonderfully, but has also mixed and layered the various earthy tones to render the complex nature of skin perfectly and with great emotion.
This oil on canvas is in good vintage condition. It is housed in a complementary wood frame lined with linen and an inner white border. The mid century frame has signs of ageing that are typical for its age, but these imperfections add to the charm of the piece.
Size: 63 x 56 cm (including frame)
