A striking and typically modernist oil still life, painted onto board. The artist has used swathes of expressive brushstrokes and thick bold outlines in this composition. The background is indistinct, with flat planes of colour used to create a sense of depth. A yellow lantern sits in the centre of the composition, and a potted plant to the right. There is certainly an element of abstraction in this picture, with the artist focusing on forms, lines and shapes instead of realistic details to create this still life.
The painting is housed in its original mid century gilt frame, with an inner fabric lined border. The painting has a small area of surface paint loss to the upper right corner, and some light surface marks overall (as shown in photos), but these do not detract from its overall attractiveness and if anything adds to its vintage charm. The frame has some minor areas of discolouration and scuffs but again this is typical for its age.
Size: 37 x 47 cm (including frame)
