Still Life with Lute


A brilliantly executed mid-century still-life modernist composition dated 1959, painted by the listed artist Arnold Eres (1917-1986) who is represented in public collections in Sweden.

Reminiscent of the well-known post-impressionist painter Vincent Van Gogh, this piece by Eres is also characterised by bold, symbolic colours, and dramatic, impulsive and highly expressive brushwork. In this composition we see a lute by a vase of flowers. Broad brushstrokes and thickly applied paint make up this rich and textured painting which has so much to offer viewers. A wonderful detail worth noticing is the mosaic-tiled table that the vase sits upon, which plays off the colours of the background. The artist has also played with forms and shapes, creating a distinctive rhythm within the painting, such as where the bold lines in the vase are echoed in the strings of the lute.

This oil on canvas is housed in a complementary wood frame with a linen border. Both the painting and frame are in excellent vintage condition.
