A bold and striking mid-century modernist style landscape composition of a hidden fortress, rendered in oil.
Distinct, urgent and and bold brushstrokes have been executed in an invigorating and confident manner; and the bold outlines on the trees, fortress and bridge further accentuates its three dimensional qualities.
A rich and restrained colour palette comprising varying shades of green, cream and black have been used; and the artist has wonderfully layered and paired contrasting shades to not only demonstrate a sense of depth and space, but also to add a lovely textural effect with the thick application of paint.
This oil on board is housed in a complementary gilt frame. The painting is overall in good vintage condition although there are very small surface paint losses at the top of the work, but the paint is very stable overall.
Size: 57 x 84 cm (including frame)
