The Mill


A large and striking modernist mid century oil on board, painting in 1945.

In this painting, short and expressive brushstrokes have been applied in vivid and distinct colours. The artist has used a series of horizontal strokes in a layering of colour to create a sense of depth of space.  The panoramic city landscape beyond and the greener landscape to the foreground have been reduced down to short dabs of bold colours that create a beautiful sense of movement within the picture. There is a wonderful sense that the artist is very fond of the landscape he has depicted.

This painting is also carries elements of the fauvist style of separating colour from its descriptive, representational purpose and allowing it to exist on the canvas as an independent element.

This painting is housed in its original mid century linen lined frame. There is some general ageing to the frame that is commensurate with age, and also in keeping with its overall look. The painting is in good vintage condition.
