This bright expressionist oil depicting a harbour scene is wonderfully dynamic. Quick brushstrokes, heavy impasto and a vibrant colour palette lend themselves well to capturing the hustle and bustle of the busy dock at daytime. Surrounding the picture stand tall warehouses that have been built to serve the harbour, smoke bellowing from their chimneys. In the foreground merchants trading their goods scurry along. A white sailing ship with its tall mast is docked in the middle of the picture – its sailor just about to to disembark down the ladder.
This original oil is by Finish/Swedish artist Kurt Erik Heinonen was born in 1915 and died in 1983. This piece is typical in style and subject for Heinonen, who often used a palette knife with strong clear colouring, mainly painting the west coast region of Sweden with views of fishing harbours with boats.
The painting is housed in a gorgeous distressed frame wood and cream frame, showing off its wood grain beautifully.
