The Golfers


A brilliantly executed semi-abstract modernist oil composition, painted in 1973 by the established Swedish artist Ivar Morsing (1919-2009), whose works have been exhibited in public collections including the National Museum in Stockholm, Moderna Museet in Stockholm, Kalmar Museum and Jönköping Museum.

The composition of the painting draws our attention to three figures holding golf bags, set amidst a sprawling golf course with lush greenery. The artist’s deliberate omission of detailed features encourages viewers to focus on the overall atmospheric ambiance as opposed to their individual characteristics.

Painted in a semi-abstract style, there is a strong focus on expressive and textured brushstrokes, as well as rich colours. The use of painterly and dynamic brushstrokes create a sense of energy and movement throughout the painting, and the clever use of a limited colour palette dominated by various shades of greens and browns helps to unify the composition and emphasise the beauty and lushness of the natural surroundings.

This oil on board is housed in a complementary slim frame. The painting is in very good vintage condition. The frame has a fair amount of scuffing to the gilt, as shown in photos. Notably there is a vertical black mark to the right hand side of the frame as shown.
