An excellently executed mid century nude composition, painted in oil onto canvas.
The artist’s use of colour to create depth and contrast, his expressive and painterly brushwork, and the placement of each brushstroke and how it fits into the composition, are a showcase of his technical and artistic mastery. The composition is wonderfully balanced, with the perfect amount of negative space. A rich colour palette applied in long, broad brushstrokes draw our eye to the nude first. We explore the figure – angular and multidirectional brushstrokes that seem effortlessly applied have in fact been considered carefully, creating just the right amount of light and shade. The artist has left out realistic details of the figure’s body, and yet his allusions through the use of colour leave us perfectly content in knowing what we are looking at it – a fine example of his mastery with his medium and colour. The figure is set against rectangular blocks of colour which tease us into exploring the objects around the figure, while providing balance and harmony within the composition.
The painting is in very good vintage condition and is unframed. It can be hung as is, or set in a new frame. There is a lining around the edges of the stretcher from the previous frame which has worn over time (as shown in close ups), but this can be easily removed.
