Women at Work
A very large and very unique mid century oil, painted on to canvas.
Painted in an expressionist manner, the artist has captured the hustle and bustle of an open street market. Several groups of figures fill the canvas, punctuated by a row of red trees to the left hand side. The artist has used a wonderfully earthy palette of rusty red and browns, which gives the painting a lovely homely feel. Consciously leaving out specific realistic details, the artist plays with colour, shape and form. As a viewer are eyes are left to explore these formal elements, which come together effectively and harmoniously, giving us a very palpable sense of what is going on and the feel of the scene.
At almost a metre in height, this large painting is housed in its original mid century frame. Both painting and frame are in good vintage condition.
Size: 94 x 78 cm (including frame)
