A quaint, peaceful picture of winter trees, painted in oil onto board in 1936. The palette is subtle – earthy browns, mellow yellows and pastel pinks and blues make up a soft composition. This quiet picture would sit beautifully on a shelf, adding interest to any spot without being too intrusive.
This oil on board is in good vintage condition. There are some areas of craquelure (fine cracks in the paint) as seen in the photos, but the paint layer is stable overall. Cracks forming within the paint layer is natural as the paint starts to age. Craquelure is not in itself harmful to the painting, and can add to the ‘quality’ of patina that only age can bring. The painting is housed in a deep silver frame with an outer green patina, which picks up on the palette of the painting and illuminates it. The frame has some marks and scuffs as seen in photos.
Size: 37 x 44 cm (including frame)
