The Surprise Visit


A lively and dynamic artwork of an interior setting featuring an elderly couple sitting by a window and a young child.

It is a sunny day outside, and this little girl has come to surprise her grandparents living in the countryside with a visit. She has entered the living room in their cottage, and the air is filled with joy as they set sights on one another.

The house is well decorated with paintings hanging on the walls, some flowers in a vase placed atop a side table, and the floor is adorned with a colourful rug.

What is so captivating in this piece is the strong use of bold, distinct and linear brushstrokes, giving rise to the various forms in this picture.

This artwork is painted by Swedish artist Ake Wickström (b. 1927), who’s works are also displayed at Vikingsberg Museum, Helsingborg, and Broby Museum.

This mid 20th century oil painting is well preserved, and is in excellent vintage condition.

It comes with a brown wooden frame with gold trimmings that complements the artwork beautifully.
