Still Life with Herrings


An outstanding mid-century modernist style still life painting, executed in oil onto canvas board.

Simple yet effective in its composition, two smoked herrings take center stage in the painting. They are set against a light yellow, white and striking blue backdrop, with their richer yellow shades and bold outlines allowing their forms to stand out.

The artist employs a painterly and expressive approach, utilising broad, confident brushstrokes that lend a sense of dynamism and rhythmic flow to the composition.

The painting celebrates the simplicity and beauty found in still life, and the artist’s confident use of colour and brushstroke elevates the painting beyond its mere representation.

This oil on canvas board is housed in a complementary gilt frame with an inner linen border. The painting is in excellent condition, and the frame has some marks to its left edge.
