A fantastic 1960s Swedish painting of 3 children, painted in an expressionist style. Layers of paint applied with a palette knife in a quick brisk manner create significant texture. A fairly muted palette of earthy colours have been used, but hints of bright greens, blues and yellow bring forth a three dimensionality to the painting. The composition is in itself unique – 2 children have their heads towards a third child in the forefront, whose side profile can be seen, and all 3 are set within an abstracted background.
The painting is housed in a gilt frame with a green border and a linen slip. The painting is in excellent vintage condition. The frame has some minor scuffs commensurate with its age.
Size: 49 x 57.5 cm (including frame)
