A stunning mid century portrait in oil, painted onto board in 1944.

The artist has focused on the formal elements in this portrait, using shape and colour to create this distinctly modernist picture. Flat shapes interlock perfectly to create the headwear, body and clothes of the female figure. The artist intentionally leaves areas of the canvas showing through and makes his brushstrokes visible, reminding us that this portrait is one created out of formal elements of shape and colour painted on a two dimensional surface, as opposed to an imitation of reality. The bright and saturated colours give this painting a wonderful air of playfulness.

The painting is housed in its original mid century gilt frame with an inner off white section that has a mottled surface. The painting is in very good vintage condition. The frame has scattered areas of paint loss but this is in keeping with the overall look of the piece.

Size: 82.5 x 48.5 cm (including frame)
