The Snail

Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

A bold and typically mid century 1960s abstract composition in oil, painted onto board.

Featuring cubist influences and reminiscent of the style of works by modernist artists such as Pablo Picasso, this abstract in oil comprises a series of shapes and forms in a deep and earthy palette of green, black, brown and yellow and white. The beauty of a work like this is that is very much subject to personal interpretation – one may be able to discern the shape of a snail, but this may not be the case for everyone, some may see a pair of acorns perhaps. Alternatively, it may be a purely abstract composition altogether, and not representative of anything in reality. We are able to just enjoy the fact that the group of shapes in contrasting colours have been carefully laid out,  encouraging our eyes to move across the canvas and take in the different pieces making up the puzzle.

This satisfying painting is housed in its original, and very unique, mid century frame with several windows that create a wonderful optical effect. Both painting and frame are in very good vintage condition.
