Surrealist Still Life


A brilliantly executed still life in pastel, beautifully presented in a black card mount and a silver frame.

The style of the pastel drawing as well as the frame that it comes in are both typically ‘mid century modern’. Vibrant colours juxtapose against cast shadows, creating a sense of mystery within the picture. The objects pictured almost seem to carry personalities of their own that they have intentionally kept hidden. There is a cinematic and theatrical feel to this piece – a feeling that the objects have been grouped together on a stage, knowing that they are bring watched by us. The artist has chosen objects that have strong, clear, statement-like shapes, and has set them against a geometric background, drawing our attention to the lines and forms.

This pastel is framed in its original light silvery-gold frame , and is set behind glass. The pastel is in excellent vintage condition, and the frame has some minor scuffs which do not detract from its overall attractiveness.

Size: 41 x 67 cm (including frame)
