A bustling and robust scene of a piazza set amidst buildings in an urban area.
The beauty of such a town square is that it encourages sociability and acts as a centre point for cultural life in the city.
The artist has managed to capture this essence so perfectly in this work, as this town square is so alive and buzzing with energy. Nightfall has set in, and a line-up of stalls are presented; people from all walks of life are coming together, socialising, checking out the interesting stalls, and taking a break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
Although the artist has chosen to use a darker colour palette to exemplify this night time scene, hints of orange have been used extensively to accentuate and highlight the distinct forms throughout the painting.
This mid 20th century painting is an original oil on canvas by female Swedish painter Gusty Olsson (1902 -1976), and is signed on the lower left.
The painting is presented in its original frame, which has some slight signs of ageing, more so to the upper edge. The painting has two small areas of paint loss to the right side, as seen in photos.
