The Pairing


A striking mid century modernist portrait painting, executed in oil onto board.

Physically direct and emotionally charged, two vivid and richly coloured figures stare at us straight on, their faces elongated, demarcated by bold lines and angles.  The artist has kept his palette restrained, sticking to a range of contrasting tones of blue , black, orange and green. The way in which the faces have been composed are perhaps a nod to masks of tribal art, and therefore also to the same ‘primitive’ influences that interested modernist artists like Picasso and Gauguin.

The painting is housed in a frame lined with a linen border.  There is some general wear to the painting surface (commensurate with age) – scattered surface marks and spots. There is some age toning and marks to the frame, and an area of age toning along the left edge of the frame.
