The Sleigh


A lively and energetic winter landscape composition, executed in oil onto canvas and dated 1981 by Swedish artist Uno Vallman (1913-2004) whose works are included in the Swedish National Museum, the Swedish Modern Museum, and also in the collections of Lyndon Johnson, Jimmy Carter, and the Tessin Institute in Paris.

Containing elements of fauvism,  this striking painting emphasises bold colours and vivid textured brushstrokes as it presents a figure sleighing through a winter landscape forest.

Rich and lively colours have been applied to the canvas, and through the use of energetic brushstrokes, the painting is beautifully textured with areas of impasto – where the paint has been applied thickly such that it stands proud from the surface.

This oil on canvas is housed in a very unique and decorative wood frame. The painting is in excellent vintage condition, and the white border on the frame has some paint losses as shown.
