  • Dusk

    £400

    Available

    Free shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A large and very atmospheric mid century modernist landscape in oil, painted onto canvas.

    This moody, expressionist painting features an array of textured detailing, showing off the artist’s mastery of the medium.  Notwithstanding the dark and deep colour palette, the artist has skilfully created several layers of blended colour that give the painting an illumination from within that was hard to capture in the photos and is much more pertinent in real life. There is a glow from the painting that suggests that the scene is of sunset, just before the landscape loses its light completely. We love the little details such as the textured dots of pink applied to the lower half of the composition, alluding to little flowers in the grassy meadow.

    This brilliant painting is housed in a gilt frame with green highlights around its outer edges. There are several inner windows, both linen lined and gilt. The painting and frame are both in very good condition. The linen section has some minor age toning, commensurate with age.

    Although an everyday scene, there is something alluring about the simplicity of the scene of which the artist has wonderfully captured.

    In this picture, two boats sit in shallow waters, and behind them we see a small cottage that is backed by mountains. The artist has painted in distinctly separate planes of colour, using a tiered effect of complementary colours that gives the composition its depth. The palette is restrained, dominated mainly by blues, yellows, greys and browns. The brushstrokes are visible, giving us a sense of the artist’s process of creation as well as giving the painting a textured effect. The painting has a very restful ambience to it, and would be such a fine addition to any interior.

In the distance, a large cloud hangs over a ship, with streams of rain visible. The artist has used two thirds of the composition to paint the sky, yet there is real sense of the vastness of the coastal shoreline. The artist has carefully and delicately used the tip of his brush to paint in wonderful details – such as the little red bed sitting on the line between the poles, the horse drawn cart, the ship out at sea, as well as the lines showing the pouring rain in the distance.

  • On the Fields

    Sold

    Free shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A large and very confidently executed modernist composition in oil, framed and ready to hang.

    Rich and saturated colours fill the canvas, composed in rectangular blocks of contrasting colours. A group of figures are seen seated in the field, presumably taking a rest from a hard day’s work in the field. Both the landscape as well as the figures have been reduced to an outline of forms – the artist has focused on the formal qualities of the scene, emphasising form, colour, shape and line over any realistic details. The result of this is an almost completely abstract composition in non realistic colours that captures the imagination.

    This excellent painting is housed in a wide profile gilt frame that illuminates the painting beautifully. Both frame and painting are in very good vintage condition.

This painting is both reminiscent of the post-impressionist style of artists like Van Gogh, as well as of Fauvist painters like  André Derain. It features bold, undisguised brushstrokes in vibrant colours, and is very much a subjective, emotional response to the landscape (as opposed to just painting the landscape as realistically as possible).

    This vibrant oil composition is housed in a dark wood and gilt frame that suits its homely look. Both painting and frame are in very good vintage condition.

    A small yet very striking mid century modernist still life composition, painted in oil onto board.

    In this well-executed and detailed work of art, there is a strong focus on colours, shapes and form.

    Using a muted earthy colour palette, the artist has thoughtfully used contrasting blocks of colours to illustrate two jugs set against a similarly-coloured background. The differing shades help to create a sense of space as well as make the three-dimensionality of the objects more pronounced.

    Fine and smooth brushstrokes have been used, and in addition to the stunning colours, there is a sense of warmth and gentleness instilled in the painting.

    This oil on board is housed in a  mid century wood frame with an inner linen lining. There are some marks and minor paint loss at the top of the painting (as it might have been reframed), however the work is in very good vintage condition overall.

    Measuring over a metre in both width and length, this very large abstract oil composition would certainly make for a statement piece in any interior.

    The painting features large planes of colour, in a very calming palette of blue, grey, brown, white and black. As you study the painting closely, you begin to notice pops of colour within and amongst the sections, such as green, orange and red. The painting is incredibly textured, and features several areas of impasto (where the paint is applied so thickly it stands proud from the surface).  We get a sense of the artist’s movement as he or she works her way across the canvas, moving left and right and up and down. The blocks of colour have been applied in a very considered way, resulting in a very well balanced composition that is very pleasing on the eye.

    The painting is housed in a simple frame that suits its modern look. Both painting and frame are in very good vintage condition. The painting has some minor paint loss to the outer edges but these are very inconspicuous due to the style of the painting. The paint layer is very stable overall.

  • Holding Together

    £590

    Available

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A stunning abstract composition in oil, painted by British artist Marian Hyland. The painting is housed in a handmade frame (by the artist) which has been crafted specifically for the painting that sits within it.

    Marian’s practice centres around the relationships of space, shape and colour, created by the interplay between drawing, painting and collage.

    In this piece, the process of mark making and layering, informed by observations of natural environmental processes (e.g. textures and marks left behind through decay/neglect, industrial architecture/landscapes and random associations of objects and surfaces) are important factors in the work.

    Her paintings evolve intuitively to find rather than make the work. She continues to build up and simplify until the composition settles cohesively.

    In this piece, the process of mark making and layering, informed by observations of natural environmental processes (e.g. textures and marks left behind through decay/neglect, industrial architecture/landscapes and random associations of objects and surfaces) are important factors in the work.

    Her paintings evolve intuitively to find rather than make the work. She continues to build up and simplify until the composition settles cohesively.

    Both painting and frame are in excellent condition.

    Size: 32 x 32 cm (including frame)

    A semi-abstract mid century modernist landscape composition in oil, painted in 1949.

    Painted in an expressive style, the artist has set a group of birch trees against blocks of colour in a myriad of green, yellow and blue shades to create a sense of space and width in the composition. The artist has skilfully painted this in a way that we are able to still discern the birch trees, the lake behind them, the mountains and the sky.

  • Strokes (Very Large)

    Sold

    SOLD

    Free UK shipping only.

    Measuring over 1.2metres in heights is this sizeable mid century abstract oil composition, painted in 1956.

    Large swathes of brushstrokes in planes of juxtaposing colour create a composition full of depth and texture. The angle of the planes of colour seem to make the painting recede inwards, creating an almost tunnel like effect towards the centre of the composition. The artist has used a wide brush, leaving the strokes of the brush on the canvas visible. We get a sense of the artist moving his arms as he swashes colour over the canvas in a considered way, bring careful to give each colour its space and prominence.

    The large size, vivid colour palette and textural effect would make this painting a statement piece in any interior.

    This mid century painting is housed in a very well suited frame. The painting has some light craquelure to its surface (commensurate with age and the thickness of the paint) but it is stable overall. The frame is also in good vintage condition.

  • Stripes

    £570

    Available

    Free UK shipping only.

    A quintessentially mid century abstract modernist Scandinavian oil composition, painted onto board.

    The artist has used a simple yet very effective and rigorous grid composition, where black lines are set against thicker vertical lines in mustard and outlined in blue, over a background of off-white. This geometric grid composition is reminiscent of modernist artists like Piet Mondrian, who also created patterns with syncopated rhythms.

    The painting is housed in a very complementary maroon wood frame, that really completes the piece. There are some areas of restoration to the painting, and there are areas of scuffing and paint loss to the frame, as shown in photos.

    £575

    Available

    Free UK, Europe & Singapore shipping.

    A skilfully executed mid century modernist style cityscape composition of Stockholm in Sweden, executed in oil onto canvas.

    The painting is a visual feast to the eyes and filled with wonderful details. The foreground of the artwork depicts a street scene with moving vehicles as well as figures strolling on a sidewalk beside it. In the middle of the painting, we see colourful buildings the stretch into the background of the work and into the horizon. There is also a river surrounding the city and a red bridge that connects across it.

    The artist has paid great attention to form, line and shape, and has made a conscious decision not to focus on realistic details.

    Using a muted earthy colour palette as well as lightly textured soft brushstrokes, he has reduced and flattened down the cityscape into blocks of contrasting colours to create a wonderful sense of depth and width to the painting.

    This oil on canvas is housed in its original mid century gilt frame which suits it very well. The painting is in very good vintage condition, and the frame has very minor areas of scuffing that do not detract from its overall appeal.

  • Still Life with Lemons

    Sold

    Free UK, Europe & Singapore shipping.

    A brilliantly executed mid century still life composition in oil, painted in 1962.

    This still life features a beautifully textured surface, with the artist using very thickly applied layers of paint to create areas of impasto where the paint stands proud from the surface. In this composition, we are able to discern a group of lemons and limes in a white bowl, but the artist has left out realistic detailing, focusing instead on the texture and colour of the objects and background. There is a deliciousness and tactility to the creaminess of the thick paint, almost as if the artist is using the medium of paint itself to capture taste and texture of the pictured fruit.

    This painting is housed in its original mid century wood frame which suits it very well. Both painting and frame are in good vintage condition.

  • Three Graces

    A mid century original coloured lithograph by the Italian artist Marino Marini, titled ‘Le Sacre du Printemps’, printed by the well known French printers studio Mourlot in Paris in 1973.

    ‘Le Sacre du Printemps’ (The Rite of Spring) is a ballet and orchestral concert work by the Russian composer Igor Stravinsky. It was the source of inspiration for this artwork by Marini.

    One of Italy’s most celebrated sculptors of the 20th century, Marino Marini primarily produced figurative bronze sculptures, though his practice also included paintings, drawings and etchings. Marini drew on the tradition of Etruscan and northern European sculpture, reinterpreting classical themes such as the female nude, the portrait bust, and the equestrian figure, which he combined with aspects of modernism—in particular exaggerated and elongated forms. Towards the end of his career Marini’s sometimes-monumental sculptures became increasingly abstracted. On trips to Paris and New York, he associated with Giorgio de ChiricoJean ArpMax Beckmann, and Alexander Calder, among other major modernist artists.

    This coloured lithograph is housed in a simple gilt frame that suits it perfectly. The print is framed behind glass. Both print and frame are in good vintage condition.

  • Winter Blue

    Sold

    Free UK, Europe & Singapore shipping.

    A really striking abstract modernist composition in oil, painted in 1995.

    The artist has used broad, expressive and gestural brushwork to depict this composition, using a colour palette that captures the very essence of the cold icy landscape of winter. There is a palpable sense of movement and rhythm within the work – we can imagine the artist’s hand working back and forth, creating a myriad of marks and strokes on the paper. The colours used are also fascinating to explore – as we look closely at the work, a multitude of colours that appear through the layers of paint begin to show themselves.

    This oil is protected behind glass and as such, getting close up photos of the textures and depth proved tricky. The painting has wonderful areas of impasto (where the paint is applied so thickly that it stands proud from the surface), and a whole range of textural details.

    This oil is housed in a white frame and is protected behind glass. Please not that some reflection of the glass is evident in the photographs. The painting has a very small area of surface paint loss when viewed close up, but due to the expressive style and colours of the piece this loss is not very noticeable. It is otherwise in a good and stable condition. The frame has some minor scuffs, commensurate with age.

    The painting is housed in a really robust distressed frame that has hints of red, green and black, bringing out the colours of the painting wonderfully. Both painting and frame are in good vintage condition. The frame has some general wear that is in keeping with its overall style.

    In this piece, the process of mark making and layering, informed by observations of natural environmental processes (e.g. textures and marks left behind through decay/neglect, industrial architecture/landscapes and random associations of objects and surfaces) are important factors in the work.

    Her paintings evolve intuitively to find rather than make the work. She continues to build up and simplify until the composition settles cohesively.

    Both painting and frame are in excellent condition.

    Size: 40 x 43 cm (including frame)

  • Flux

    £535

    Available

    Free UK, Europe & Singapore shipping.

    A wonderfully rhythmic mid century abstract composition, painted onto board.

    We get a distinct sense that the artist is painting a visual manifestation of a type of movement or motion. The artist has eliminated all naturalistic forms, concentrating instead on the trajectory and direction of the movements. The painting has a limited palette of white, black, grey and green, putting a stark emphasis on the synthesis that the artist achieves with the looped, flowing and intertwined curves. He is perhaps suggesting the passage of time as well as movement in space.

    This acrylic on board is housed in its original silver frame with red undertones. There are minor stains on the top left on the painting, but the piece is in very good vintage condition overall. There are minor scuffs to the frame.

  • Coastal View

    £485

    Available

    Free UK Shipping Only.

    A large and visually pleasing semi-abstract coastal landscape composition, executed in oil.

    Long horizontal brushstrokes that have been executed in a rhythmic manner fill the canvas, adding an overall soothing effect to the painting. The artist has skilfully reduced what appears to be a coastal sea view and terrain down to planes of contrasting shades of blue, purple, green and brown that harmonise and blend effortlessly into each other.

    This very well executed painting is housed in its original mid century gilt frame with an inner linen lined border. The painting is in very good condition. There are some age spots present to the frame, particularly on the linen.

  • Åmotsdal

    £365

    Available

    Free UK, Europe & Singapore shipping.

    A vibrant and expressive mid-century modernist style nature landscape painting, executed in oil in 1961.

    The artwork displays a landscape composition of Åmotsdal, a valley and small village in Norway, where 2 houses are depicted in nature with mountains in the background.

    The artist has successfully conveyed the lushness and vibrancy of this nature landscape – as rich and saturated colours in green, blue and brown have been applied to the board through the use of expressive and lively brushstrokes that add a nice texture overall.

    This oil on board is housed in a well-suited grey frame that has an inner linen lining. The painting is in very good vintage condition. There are areas of chips and scuffs on the frame, particularly at the bottom (as shown in the images).

  • Forest

    £600

    Available

    Free UK shipping only.

    A very large and textured mid century abstract modernist oil composition, painted in 1964.

    Titled ‘Forest (Movement through Forest)’, it gives us wonderful insight into the artist’s source of inspiration. On the one hand, this piece is completely abstract and without its title, we might only see something non-representational. Here at The Discerning Palette, before translating the title, this piece reminded us of levels in an industrial building or something related to construction and the modern industrial world. The title added another layer of meaning to the piece, and opened our eyes to a different interpretation altogether. We were suddenly able to ‘see the wood through the trees’, pun intended.

    Dynamic strokes criss-cross across the canvas in a myriad of angles and levels. Areas of impasto have been created to the thick application of paint, resulting in a piece full of texture and layers of blended and unblended colour.

    This exceptional oil has been framed interestingly, with strips of  clear perspex fixed to the canvas edges. This gives a box like appearance to the piece, and adds to its ‘modern’ look. The painting is in very good vintage condition. The frame is missing a small corner to the lower right, as shown in the close ups. This missing corner is not obvious until looked at closely.

  • Lady in Blue

    Sold

    SOLD.

    A fun and playful cubist line portrait composition in oil, painted in 1975.

    The female figure’s form has been rapidly distilled into lines of dynamic shape and movement. A style of drawing /painting used by artists like Picasso and Matisse, line art is a tool for the artist to work out complicated ideas, crystallising them with brilliant virtuosity into linear form. Today the influence of line art is everywhere and can be regarded as one of the fundaments of an almost infinitely versatile graphic language. It can be seen not only in the works of countless artists, but also in graphic design, advertising, animation, and equally at home in a viral gif, on a billboard or in museums or galleries.

    Here the artist has also condensed his palette down very effectively into shades of one colour – blue. Beyond the black outline, the picture retains its sense of depth and space through the skilful use of the varying gradients of blue.

    This painting is housed in a simple silver frame that suits it very well, and is in very good vintage condition. There are some minor scuffs to the frame which do not detract from the overall attractiveness of the piece.

  • The Seamstresses

    Sold

    Free UK, Europe & Singapore shipping.

    A tenderly executed scene of 4 figures by townhouses, painted in oil onto board.

    This mid century painting depicts three seated figures in the midst of sewing some white frabric, their backs against a white walled townhouse. A separate female figure holding a basket is also seen to the left of the composition.

    The artist has left out any facial details, choosing instead to focus on the shapes, lines and forms of them. Expressive brushstrokes in non-representative colours have been applied to the canvas, creating this well balanced and very striking street scene.

    There is something very restful about this piece, capturing the quiet life of a rural village and the daily activities of the people.

    The painting is housed in a dark wood and gilt frame, and is in very good vintage condition. There are some minor scuffs to the frame that certainly do not detract from the overall attractiveness of the piece.

    The artist’s display his painterly skills – as he wonderfully layers contrasting colours upon one another to create this outstanding and lightly textured composition.

    The painting is housed in a light wood frame that has been bleached lightly, with the wood grain still visible. There is some general overall age wear to the piece, but this is in keeping with its vintage style and is commensurate with age.

  • Substance

    £330

    Available

    Free UK, Europe & Singapore shipping.

    A striking and wonderfully textured mid century abstract mixed media on canvas.

    Here the artist has used oil paint mixed with an aggregate to create a sand like texture on the surface of the painting, which has added another layer of depth to the work. The artist has applied large swathes of colour in an expressive manner. We can imagine his brush dancing across the surface of the canvas as it makes its long and gestural marks. The beauty of the abstract nature of this composition is that it can bring to mind several different things depending on the viewer and their experiences, and for us it evokes memories around cliffs and the oceans.

    The painting is housed in a thin wood frame. Both painting and frame are in excellent vintage condition.

    £415

    Available

  • Yellow Fields

    Sold

    Free UK, Europe & Singapore shipping.

    A large and very well executed mid century modernist landscape composition in oil, painted onto canvas.

    Rural fields of yellow sit underneath a light blue green sky, stretching out far into the distance. A white farmhouse sits quietly in the centre, punctuating the composition ad giving the layout its balance and harmony. Despite the majority of the composition being painted in yellow, the artist skilfully shows us how just one colour in varying tones and shades can still provide so much depth and interest. We see the broad, expressive brushstrokes marked across the canvas, capturing the movement an dynamism of the natural landscape.

    This striking painting is housed in an equally striking frame, which houses it perfectly. Both painting and frame are in very good vintage condition.

  • Ladies Lunch

    Sold

    SOLD.

    Free UK Shipping Only.

    A striking and brilliantly mid century cubist composition in oil, painted onto board.

    This painting depicts two female figures seated at a balcony table, with a jug and two glasses in front of them. Beyond the balcony is an ocean view with the setting sun.

    The artist has reduced the scene down to its formal qualities, focusing on shape, line, pattern and colour. The figures and the scene surrounding them have been painted from multiple angles under a cubist ethos, resulting in a composition that appears fragmented and abstracted. The artist has also restricted his colour palette, using a majority of vivid red, brown, white and orange in different tones. Notwithstanding the fragmentation and palette, the painting is wonderfully balanced and sings with harmony.

    This piece would make a very striking addition to any interior and would be a real statement piece.

    The painting is housed in its original mid century frame. The painting is in very good vintage condition. The frame has some damage to the inner section of its lower right corner, as shown in the close up photos.

    Size: 50 x 86 cm (including frame)

  • Road Trip

    £490

    Available

    Free UK, Europe & Singapore shipping.

    A panoramic and ambient large semi abstract mid century modernist composition in oil, painted onto board.

    As we let our eyes rest on this painting, it takes us on a journey to a place far away. The view point of the composition is reminiscent of being on a road trip, staring out the window looking at the panoramic landscape laid out before us. A long never-ending road stretches out in front of us, with not a soul in sight. There is a softness and quietness to this painting which makes it such a wonderful picture to transport our minds elsewhere. The simple yet very effective composition combined with the  light and minimal colour palette has a meditative effect.

    This large oil on canvas is housed in a very complementary mid century frame with a dark outer edge, and linen lined border and an inner gilt window. It is very effective in drawing our sight inward into the painting, enhancing its meditative effect. Both painting and frame are in very good vintage condition.

    Painted in shades of sanguine, the artist has reduced the landscape of the quarry down to the outline of forms, focusing on the shape, texture, and line of the rocks and the ground. Punctuating the centre of the composition is a green tree, which brings balance and a sense of depth to the landscape.

    Housed in its original mid century frame with a dark wood outer border and an inner linen lined window, this painting is in very good vintage condition. There are some minor scuffs to the frame but these do not detract from the overall attractiveness of the piece.

  • Figures at a Pier

    Sold

    Free UK Shipping Only.

    A very large and brilliantly executed mid century cubist composition in oil, painted in 1957 by well known artist Ivar Morsing.

    In typical Morsing style, he has chosen to focus on formal qualities of line, shape, form and colour. He creates beautiful harmony on the canvas, applying contrasting blocks of saturated colour to the surface, illustrating his cubist influences which he is most known for. Strong, rich, and vivid colours of orange, red and white are set against a sky blue. The chosen palette and the was he has placed the complementary colours gives each shade and tone its own prominence.

  • Cadence

    Sold

    Free UK, Europe and Singapore shipping.

    A very large and distinctive mid century abstract oil composition, painted onto canvas.

    The artist has not shied away from a dark and heavy palette, applying long and textured brushstrokes in varying shades of black, grey, and brown. The piece is filled with emotion – there is a sense of heaviness and moodiness to it which is just brilliant. We get a sense that the artist is painting in a cathartic manner, expressing his inner feelings onto the canvas. The way some areas of the paint has been allowed to drip down is particularly poignant too.

    This wonderful oil on canvas is housed in a simple wood frame.  There is some light scattered areas of craquelure across the painting commensurate with its age, but the paint is in very stable condition overall.

    A brilliantly executed, pensive mid century modernist still life in oil, painted in 1935.

    Textured, expressionist brushstrokes fill the canvas, capturing a soft light that enters this interior scene. We see two paintbrushes sitting quietly in a ceramic jug on a table, with a window behind it to its right. The artist has beautifully captured the scene – the paintbrushes have seen a day’s work, with remnants of their paint still evident on their tips. The artist has taken these simple objects as his subject, and has shown us how delicate and poignant his tools are to him.

    This wonderful painting is housed in a robust frame which suits it very well. The oil painting is in very good vintage condition. The frame has some very minor scuffs.

  • Dahlias

    £440

    Available

    Free UK, Europe and Singapore shipping.

    A large and very expressive mid century floral still life composition in oil, painted in 1941.

    Reminiscent of still lifes by the well known painter Vincent Van Gogh, this floral oil also features similar characteristics such as the vibrant contrasts of complementary colours, and short and swift expressive brushwork. In this picture, we see a bouquet of dahlias sitting in an aquamarine vase, and behind that sits a green leaved potted plant. On the bottom right, a small bowl punctuates and balances out the composition. Studying the painting up close, we can see how the artist has used criss-cross brushwork to create depth and three dimensionality, as well as capture the effects of light. There is a wonderful sense of movement and dynamism in the picture. and it would make a striking addition to an interior space.

    This large painting is housed in a robust light coloured frame that suits it very well. The painting is in very good vintage condition. The frame has a loss to the top edge, as shown. It is otherwise in a good and stable condition.

  • Eglise

    Sold

    Free UK shipping only.

    A very large, and very well executed mid century French impressionist composition in oil, painted onto canvas.

    This large and very textured painting depicts a view of the church of Saint-Rigomer et Sainte-Tenestine in Vaulhallen, France. Fine and angular outlines contrast brilliantly against areas of broad, expressive brushwork. To add to this, the artist has added an aggregate to some areas creating textured areas of impasto. The large size and intense detailing creates a myriad of aspects for the view to explore and enjoy. The artist has very skilfully managed to capture the ‘patina’ of the old structure, as well as the almost ‘golden’ light that is cast on the monument, using a restricted colour palette with highlights to create a sense of space, depth, and light.

    This very large painting is housed in a very complementary champagne gilt frame. The painting is in good vintage condition. The frame has some minor age wear commensurate with age.

    Free UK, Europe and Singapore shipping.

    A panoramic mid century modernist landscape composition in oil, painted onto canvas.

    This restful composition depicts a far reaching landscape sitting under blue skies. The artist has used long and expressive brushstrokes that have been gently but confidently applied, capturing the airy and diaphanous quality of the meadow before him. This simple yet very effective composition would make a perfect resting spot for our eyes, and would suit a bedroom or living room area very well.

    The painting is housed in wide profile frame with a linen-lined border and an inner silver window. The painting has some surface marks but nothing that detracts from its overall attractiveness.  The frame has some minor scuffs.

  • Triptych

    £510

    Available

    Free UK, Europe and Singapore shipping.

    A mid century abstract modernist composition in oil, painted in 1950.

    This striking abstract composition features a very loose relationship to the visible world. Instead, it forces the viewer to focus on the qualities of form, line, colour, brushwork and composition.

    What loosely appears to be an interior scene has been schematised and simplified into geometric shapes and gestural marks. Yet even though it is largely divorced from recognisable reality, the forms within this picture are still expressive and have the power to stir aesthetic emotion.

    The painting is housed in a simple light wood frame that suits it very well. Both painting and frame are in very good vintage condition.

  • The Garden

    Sold

    Free UK, Europe and Singapore shipping.

    A brilliantly executed mid century cubist landscape in oil, painted in 1957.

    We can just about make out a group of houses or sheds with a garden in front of it, but this view has been reduced and flattened down into abstract blocks of colour. Rather than painting the view before him in realistic detail, the artist has chosen to focus instead on the formal qualities of the landscape, such as colour, line, shape, form and pattern. With expressive brushwork, the artist has skilfully used colour theory and has applied a myriad of colours that contrast but harmonise at the same time.

    This very well executed painting is housed in its original mid century wood frame with an inner linen lined border. The painting is in very good condition. There is some age wear present to the frame.

  • Pots

    Sold

    Free UK, Europe and Singapore shipping.

    A simple but very effective mid century still life composition, painted in oil onto canvas.

    Depicted here are 4 pots painted in a rich, earthy colour palette. The artist has used expressive and textured brushstrokes, and has used the juxtaposition of light and dark tones to create a sense of depth and three dimensionality. The pots have been painted close up – their bodies filling the majority of the canvas. There is a wonderful harmony and balance to the composition overall.

    The painting is housed in a wide profile gilt frame that is very well crafted and shows off the grain of the wood. The painting is in good vintage condition. The frame has some very minor scuffs, commensurate with age.

  • Iris

    £340

    Available

    Free UK, Europe and Singapore shipping.

    An absolutely lovely mid century floral composition in oil, painted onto canvas.

    There is an element of intrigue when it comes to decoding this picture. Just entering the left side of the composition is the edge of the back of an artist’s stretched canvas, with the long stem of the iris flower in the middle, and then to the right we have what looks like a wooden beam at an angle. Is the canvas leaning against the wall? And the beam perhaps the edge of a window? Or is the artist actually facing a mirror, painting the reflection of what he sees, including the back of his canvas?

    The blue that the artist has used is deep and rich. It draws you in and goes perfectly with the wood and gilt frame. The artist has painted the iris flower delicately and intricately, capturing its sumptuous colours and its tall, stout stem.

    The painting is housed in a very well suited dark wood frame with an inner gilt window. The painting has a very small area of paint loss to the bottom left section (as seen in close up photo). The frame has some scuffs to its lower edge. Overall the painting and frame is in good vintage condition.

  • Chalk

    £415

    Available

    Free UK, Europe and Singapore shipping.

    A simple yet very effective mid century abstract modernist composition in oil, painted on to canvas.

    The artist has used a range of pastel colours, applied to the canvas in broad and expressive brushstrokes that fill the surface. Each mark is gentle, but considered. There is a wonderful harmony in the colours – each tone sits next to another beautifully. The picture has a very calming feel to it, and the texture and detail make it very interesting to explore.

    The painting is housed in a very well crafted wood frame, which suits the painting perfectly. Both painting and frame are in excellent vintage condition.

  • Frosted Fields

    Sold

    Free UK, Europe and Singapore shipping.

    A striking and very picturesque 20th century modernist composition in oil, painted onto canvas and dated 1999.

    The artist has captured the essence and feeling of the cold and wintery rural landscape. 3 solid blocks of brown that represent the farmhouses sit stoically in the field, with a frost covered field before them. The artist has created layers of earthy colours in short and expressive brushstrokes, and has possibly used a sponge like tool to dab out areas, giving this picture a very distinct texture and depth.  To the left a group of alpine trees create balance and structure in the composition.

    The painting is housed in a simple gilt frame which suits it very well. The painting is in good vintage condition. The frame has some scattered scuff marks and scratches, and some general age related wear to the corners.

  • Breeze

    Sold

    SOLD

    Free UK Shipping Only.

    A large and very beautifully painted mid century oil composition, painted onto canvas.

    The artist has captured the soft pervading light over the coastline wonderfully, using a range of very soothing colours to create this composition. Gentle yet expressive brushwork has been used, resulting in lots of texture as well as paint detail for the viewer to explore. The way the artist has painted the diffused light in the water and sky is reminiscent of the way Impressionist painters like Turner captured the ephemeral nature of light.

    This very calm and soothing painting is housed in a stunning grey wood frame with visible grain.  Both frame and painting are in excellent vintage condition.

  • Afar

    Sold

    Free shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A long and picturesque mid century modernist oil composition, painted onto canvas.

    Using a restricted palette of earthy colours, the artist has painted this rural landscape in an expressive style. Short vertical brushwork is visible over the landscape area, giving this painting a wonderful textural effect. The artist has used contrasting colours and layering to create a sense of depth and space within the picture.

    The painting has a very restful feel to it, and would be a very calming and soothing addition to any interior.

  • Coast Trail

    Sold

    Free shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A very well executed mid century coastalscape composition in oil, painted in 1948.

    Painted with broad, expressive brushwork in a semi abstract manner, this composition has a very distinctive feature – its red beach. Although the location is not specified, it could quite possibly be a depiction of the red sand beach in Santorini in Greece. The artist has used a deep and rich colour palette, with strokes that convey the ruggedness and vigour of the coastline. The area of red punctuates the centre of the composition, creating a focal point for the viewer’s eye.  As we shift our focus to the right, we begin to notice the layering and blending of all the various colours that the artist has used. The composition seems to go on far into the horizon, capturing the expanse of the natural landscape.

    The painting is housed in a stunning wood frame with visible grain, and with an inner and outer gilt window. Both frame and painting are in excellent vintage condition.

  • Forage

    Sold

    Free shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A rich and vivid mid century modernist still life composition, painted in oil onto board.

    Various objects sit on a drop leaf table, including two bottles, a pot of onions, a basket of vegetables, and two apples. This well balanced vertical composition features a rich and deep colour palette, as well as expressive brushwork that is remiscnent of painters like Paul Cezanne.

    The painting is housed in a very well suited light wood frame. The painting has some very small areas of paint loss, as shown in the close up photos. This paint loss doesn’t detract from the overall attractiveness of the piece and is in keeping with its vintage look.

    Please note that the photographs of the painting were taken under natural light and due to the dark colours of the paint, there is some glare evident in the photos.

  • Apples

    Sold

    Free shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A vibrant and vivid modernist still life, painted in oil onto canvas.

    A group of rosy apples sit on a white plat, set against a cerulean blue background to the top half, and darker greenish-blue to the bottom half of the composition. The pink and yellow of the apples stand out beautifully against the blue, and the artist has captured the light on them skilfully. A diluted layer of paint has been applied to the composition, and the artist has let it naturally move down the painting, creating a drip effect that is most visible along the bottom edge of the composition. This intriguing effect is gives the painting an added layer of texture and depth which makes it very satisfying to look at. The artist is intentionally reminding us that this picture in front of us is indeed a painting, and that we are to notice the materiality of the paint itself.

    The painting is housed in a silver painted wood frame which suits it well and illuminates the painting. Both painting and frame are in good vintage condition.

  • The Hamlet

    Sold

    Free shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A small and very well painted mid century modernist landscape composition, painted in oil onto board.

    The artist has worked in a distinctly modernist style, using flattened blocks and shapes in contrasting colours in a layered effect to build up space and depth. He has used a rich and earthy colour palette that gives this painting its very ‘homely’ and ‘country’ feel. The composition is very well balanced, and there is a very satisfying sense of harmony (both in terms of structure as well as colour) that makes this painting very appealing to look at it.

    The painting is housed in a simple wood frame that suits it perfectly. The painting is in very good vintage condition. The frame has some scuffing to its edges, as shown.

  • Terracotta

    Sold

    Free shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A brilliantly executed mid century street scene composition in oil, painted onto canvas.

    Reminiscent of the modern British painter L.S. Lowry, this painting also features an urban landscape peopled with small stylised human figures to the right side. The artist has used a restricted colour palette, using repeated but juxtaposed colours of cream, orange, grey and green. The forms have been flattened and the scene of buildings has been reduced down to large plans of colour. Interestingly, the artist has left details of the substrate (the canvas) showing through, which also gives this painting a ‘drawing’ or ‘illustration’ like effect.

    The painting is housed in a very complementary wood frame with a linen lined border. The painting is in very good vintage condition. The linen border has some marks and the frame some scuffing, but none of that detracts from the overall attractiveness of the piece.

    Size: 43 x 55 cm (including frame)

  • Blue Mountains

    £360

    Available

    Free shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A large and very well executed mid century modernist mountain landscape, painted in oil onto canvas.

    Broad, distinct and expressive brushstrokes make up this vivid landscape composition. The artist has skilfully captured the richness and ruggedness of the natural landscapes through his dynamic application of paint and choice of palette. Although the artist has not used an realistic details,  the painting has much to offer in terms of details to explore. The artist has used a myriad of brushwork, from long, broad strokes to smaller dabs and lines of paint. The layers have been built of very effectively to create great depth and space within this panoramic picture.

    The painting is housed in a simple wood frame which complements it very well. Both painting and frame are in good vintage condition.

    Available

    Free shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A simple yet very effective abstract composition in oil, painted onto canvas.

    A set of bright abstract forms sit against a black background, teasing our eyes into an optical illusion. These elements excite the imagination – depending on the viewer various subjective interpretations can be made. Aside from any interpretation, the coloured forms are in themselves fascinating to look at due to the striking juxtaposition between them and the dark background.

    The frame is housed in a simple red frame which adds to its striking effect. Both painting and frame are in good vintage condition.

    Sold

    Free shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A large and striking mid century abstract composition in oil, painted onto board.

    This vintage oil features large swatches of black and brown forms, with interesting pink, green and orange detailing. The ‘negative space’ surrounding the forms have  been painted in a light blue / lilac colour. The combination of forms and shapes on the surface create a very well balanced composition which is very satisfying to look at it.

    The painting is housed in a mid century black painted frame which has a painted inner linen lined border. The painting is in good condition. The frame has some general wear included scattered paint losses and scuffs. The painting can be hung as is for a ‘shabby chic’ look, or could be reframed for a modern look.

  • The Women

    Sold

    SOLD

    A large and excellently executed semi-abstract mid century oil composition, painted onto canvas.

    Depicted here are the outlines of several figures crowded together. The artist has applied a myriad of rich, saturated colours with confident and expressive brushwork. He has reduced the figured down to their formal elements – facial and physical details have been abstracted down to skilfully executed paint marks in various flattened shapes, forms and lines. There is wonderful movement, texture and dynamism to the piece.

    The painting is housed in its original mid century frame which has multiple borders lined in different material. There is both a woven hessian section as well as a linen-lined section.

    Size: 82 x 62 cm (including frame)

    Free domestic (UK) shipping. As this artwork is very large, it is unlikely that we will be able to ship it internationally. If you are very interested and are located outside of the UK, please contact us and we will see what we can do.

  • Nude with Blue

    £340

    Available

    Free shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A sensitively painted mid century oil, painted onto board.

    A female figure is depicted sitting on a wooden chair, her gaze turned away from us. Expressive and distinct brushwork has been skilfully used to paint this composition – the artist has successfully captured the form of the body, as well as the way the light hits the figure’s skin. Juxtaposed against the neutral and beige tones of the figure is ablue fabric that has been hung over the chair. This pop of colour not only creates a focal point for our eyes, but also brings a cohesiveness to the composition.

    There is a timelessness to this picture that will make it a fine addition to any interior.

    The painting is housed in a wide profile frame with silver highlights. The painting is in very good vintage condition. The frame has scattered areas of paint loss, as seen in the photos.

  • Sea Salt

    Sold

    Free shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A very calming and restful mid century coastal composition in oil, painted onto board.

    Using soft, subtle colours for most of the composition, this soothing coastal landscape depicts a sandy beach with a wooded landscape to the right and blue waters to the left. A green bush to the right punctuates the composition and gives our eyes a focal point to rest on. Two white lines that indicate a path lead our eyes far into the distance, giving us a wonderful sense of the expansiveness of the coastalscape, transporting our minds far away to this restful place.  Long, expressive brushwork creates this well balanced composition which has been cleverly split into two angled halves.

    The painting is housed a beautiful wide profile gilt frame. The painting is in excellent vintage condition. The painting has some very minor scuffing which does not detract from its overall attractiveness.

  • Orange Tree

    Sold

    Free UK shipping only.

    A large and very textured mid century modernist landscape oil, painted onto board.

    The artist has used a range of tools that have created different types of marks on the surface. The artist has built up the layers of paint skilfully, creating a composition full of texture and impasto. Rich and saturated colours in orange, blue, yellow, green and black have been applied to the board in an expressive manner, incorporating the artist’s subjective response to the landscape before him. An umbrella like tree punctuates the left side of the picture creating a focus for our eyes. Rich blues span the sky above. and a long path leads our view further into the picture.

    This expressive painting is housed in a very complementary light wood frame with a linen lined border. The painting is in very good vintage condition. There are some very minor scuffs to the lower edge of the frame but it is in very good condition overall.

  • Winter Rooftops

    Sold

    SOLD.

    A small but stunning mid century modernist landscape composition in oil, painted in 1959.

    This excellently proportioned composition features the snow covered rooftops of a group of houses, painted in a soothing and subtle colour palette. The artist guides us into appreciating the formal qualities of this scene, such as the angular lines and shapes of the roofs, doors and windows, the geometry of the houses stacked up against each other and the repeated patterns created by colour, shape and line. Contrasted against the very angular structures of the buildings are the more free flowing trees, whose branches peek out above the rooftops. The red and ochre walls of the houses and the blue of the sky stand out beautifully against the large planes of white snow.

    This painting is housed in a very well suited gilt frame with a lighter inner window. Both painting and frame are in very good vintage condition.

    SOLD

    Free shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A very soothing and restful mid century landscape composition in oil, painted onto board.

    A winding river leads our eye deep into the picture, transporting us into this rural wintery landscape surrounded by nature, where pockets of snow rest quietly on the ground. In the distance we see a wooded landscape lining the horizon, with just the tops of the mountains peaking out from behind. The rising sun casts its pinkish – purple hue over the landscape, giving this picture its warm glow. The artist has skilfully captured the peaceful and tranquil feel of this rural landscape through the use of expressive brushwork and colour.

    Sold

    SOLD.

    A very well executed mid century modernist landscape in oil, painted onto board.

  • Construction 1 & 2

    £625

    Available

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    This pair of modernist ‘constructivist’ three dimensional works feature cut out panels that have been painted in oil and assembled. The artist has used stripped down, geometric forms and modest materials.  They are a fine example of technical mastery and the organisation of material. Here the role of the artist as ‘painter’ has been re-imagined – the artist is an engineer wielding tools instead of a painter holding a brush. The art has been ‘built’, rather than emerging from an expressive impulse or an academic tradition. As a result, the artworks are intriguing to explore from many angles, and would make a striking addition to any space.

    Artworks and frames are all in excellent condition.

    £590

    Sold

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A stunning pair of abstract compositions in oil, painted by British artist Marian Hyland. Each painting is housed in a handmade frame (by the artist) which has been crafted specifically for the painting that sits within it.

    Marian’s practice centres around the relationships of space, shape and colour, created by the interplay between drawing, painting and collage.

    In this pair, the process of mark making and layering, informed by observations of natural environmental processes (e.g. textures and marks left behind through decay/neglect, industrial architecture/landscapes and random associations of objects and surfaces) are important factors in the work.

    Her paintings evolve intuitively to find rather than make the work. She continues to build up and simplify until the composition settles cohesively.

  • Glory

    Sold

    SOLD

    Free UK shipping.

    A very large and very bold original mid century composition in oil, painted in 1967.

    In this striking painting, a figure stands with arms held high, carrying a fish. Three birds circle the figure and fish, and a round, shining yellow sun shines down from the top right corner. The painting has been painted in a distinctly modernist style, taking influence from the simplified, stylised and monumental figures of Iberian and African tribal art and sculpture. The celebratory way in which the figure holds up his catch imbues this painting with such joy and exultation.

    The large size, colour palette, texture and subject matter of this painting would make it a real statement piece in any interior.

    The painting is housed in wide profile dark silver frame. Both painting and frame are in excellent vintage condition.

  • Marmalade Landscape

    Sold

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    An exceptional mid century modernist composition in oil, painted on to board.

    Swathes of rich, saturated colour connect and intersect to create this striking landscape composition. Using a range of non naturalistic colours to depict the landscape, the artist reduces the scene before him down into shapes, forms and patterns, Realistic details have been intentionally left out, and traditional methods of perspective cast out. Instead, the artist focusses on formal qualities, and uses contrasting colour to create depth and space. Also incorporated into the composition are elements of cubism and abstract patterning.

    The painting is housed in a gilt frame with a linen lined border. There is some craquelure (typical for an oil of this age) to the lower half of the painting but the paint surface on the entire composition is very stable. There is some surface wear to the inner edge of the right side of the painting, as shown in the close ups.

  • Country Fields

    Sold

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A large and brilliantly executed mid century landscape composition in oil, painted onto board.

    There is a striking contrast between the top half and the bottom half of the composition, which makes this painting very interesting to admire. To the top half of the composition we have much shorter, softer brushwork, which give us a sense of the light movement and airiness of the sky. Punctuating the composition just off centre, is a standing tree, giving our eyes a point of rest, before we work our way downwards to the bottom of the composition. To the lower half, we see the use of much stronger, bolder colours as well as thicker and more textured paint application. Rather than painting the field realistically, the artist has reduced the details down to abstracted forms – planes and brushstrokes of earthy colours that fit together like a jigsaw puzzle, successfully giving this painting its sense of space and depth.

    The excellent landscape painting is housed in a stunning gilt frame. The paintings is in excellent vintage condition. The frame has some very minor scuffs commensurate with age, which certainly do not detract from its overall attractiveness.

  • Country Path

    Sold

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    An excellent mid century expressionist composition in oil, painted onto board.

    This expressive work features free brushwork as well as generous and textured paint application. Simple in composition yet complex in execution, the artist has swift and multi direction brushstrokes to create a sense of depth and space. This use of non naturalistic colour and dynamic paint application charges this painting with emotion – the artist has incorporated his own response to what he sees, capturing the ‘feel’ of the landscape.

    The striking painting is housed in light wood frame with gilt highlights that complements the painting very well. Both painting and frame are in excellent vintage condition.

  • Sky

    Sold

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A brilliant modernist abstract composition in oil, painted in 1967.

    Broad, distinct, and painterly brushstrokes have been applied to the surface to create this abstract composition. The subtle nuances in tones and shades create a rather satisfying composition, encouraging our eyes to follow the expressive brushwork around the canvas. The sweeping of the brushwork adds to the  impact of the painting and brings our attention to the materiality of the creamy paint and the physical movement of the artist’s hand. The areas of pronounced impasto add a sense of depth and three dimensionality to the painting.

    The painting is housed in a simple wood frame that suits it well. Both painting and frame are in excellent vintage condition.

  • Stockholm in Winter

    Sold

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A very pleasing and well executed mid century river & city scape composition, painted in oil onto canvas.

    The painting has a beautifully gentle feel to it – the artist has used mostly soft colours in a pastel palette, with the exception of darker colours for the wood structures within the scene. The artist has successfully conveyed the softness of fresh snow that has covered the landscape. The cityscape of Stockholm under a pastel sky lines the back of the composition, while in the foreground we see a boat docked on the river Söderström. In the foreground, the artist has used richer, darker colours contrasted with the white snow to give our eyes a focus, and then lightening as we move further back into the composition. The movement of the brushwork is also interesting to notice, with areas of more distinct horizontal and vertical strokes contrasting against other areas with shorter, swifter strokes.

    The painting is housed in a beautifully rustic wood frame with an inner gilt border, as well as a cream coloured slip. The painting is in very good vintage condition. The inner border of the frame has some marks, as shown in the photos.

  • Vessel & Fruit

    Sold

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A rather skilfully executed mid century still life in oil, painted onto board.

    Here we have a very balanced and visually pleasing composition of a vessel with fruit in front of it, including berries, figs and squash. Wide and expressive brushstrokes fill the canvas, giving this composition its vigour and dynamism. Despite the style of the painting being expressive rather than realistic, the composition very skilfully still conveys great detail – we get a palpable sense of the ripeness of the round berries and the cold, hard texture of the ceramic vessel.

    There is a timelessness to this picture that would make it an easy fit in most interiors. The painting is housed in a silver frame which complements it well. The painting is in good vintage condition. The frame has some minor scuffs but is in good condition overall.

    Size: 32 x 56 cm (including frame)

  • Harbour Sunrise

    £420

    Available

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A really stunning mid century marina view composition, painted in oil onto canvas.

    The artist has worked in a post-impressionist style, skilfully using non realistic colours that are more expressive and personal to convey the way the light touches the landscape and its resulting reflections. As a result, we see an almost kaleidoscope like array of colours in the composition. The composition is grounded by the deeper, darker colours along the bottom half, which also has larger areas of colours compared to the more horizontal brushwork we see in the upper half of the composition.

    This wonderful landscape is housed in its original mid century gilt frame with an inner linen lined border. Both painting and frame are in excellent vintage condition.

  • Blue Vase

    Sold

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A wonderfully striking mid century still life, painted in oil onto board.

    In this composition, a blue vase filled with white flowers sits alongside a smaller white vessel and a peach laying on its side. The artist has used a very vivid and rich colour palette, contrasting deep greens and oranges against the striking cobalt blue of the vase. There is a brilliant sense of harmony and balance within the picture, both in terms of colour as well as composition. The artist has used short, expressive brushstrokes for the background, giving the picture a sense of depth and space.

    There is a timelessness to this picture that would make it an easy fit in any interior.

    The painting is housed in a beautiful gilt frame that suits it perfectly. The painting is in excellent vintage condition. The frame has a minor scuff top right (as shown), but is otherwise in very good condition.

  • Smile

    Sold

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A wonderfully fun and playful original artist’s proof lithograph, signed by Leif Sylvester and inscribed ‘E.A’ (épreuve d’artiste) to the bottom.

    An artist proof print has a connection to limited edition prints. These prints are used as a test print by the artist and kept for their personal collection. Traditionally the artist would take the proof straight off the printing press and amend the colours and quality. Then, once the artist was happy with the proof, they would then proceed with the limited edition print.

    Artist Proofs are generally valued higher than other prints in the edition, due to the rarity and small quantity of them. Oftentimes the Artist Proof are altered from the final edition, creating a uniqueness to them that is very desirable.

    This lithograph is housed behind glass in a complementary silver frame. Both print and frame are in good vintage condition.

    Size: 48 x 38 cm (including frame)

    A bright and playful mid century modernist oil, painted onto canvas.

    This semi abstract composition depicts what appears to be two trees in autumnal colours within a green landscape, with more trees lining the top edge of the canvas.

  • Trellis

    £390

    Available

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A striking mid century modernist abstract composition, painted in oil onto board.

    In the centre of the composition we see thickly applied layers of paint and this area of impasto in grey and rust brown creates an initial focal point. The composition has a grid like effect, with layers of paint contrasting against each other in a myriad of ways. The crossed angles in which the paint has been applied create a distinct sense of depth to the painting, drawing our eyes further and further inward to discover the various layers. The lighter colours sit underneath the darker, earthier colours, giving it a luminous effect.

    Although the picture does not depict anything identifiable, it is very expressive and emotional in its effect,  created both through the colour palette as well as the gestural way in which the paint has been applied.

    The painting is housed in a dark wood frame with a linen lined border.  There are some age spots on the top left of the painting, but it is overall in good vintage condition. There are minor scuffs to the frame, commensurate with its age.

  • The Wait

    Sold

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A large and very well executed 20th century modernist style oil composition, painted onto canvas.

    The artist has left out realistic details, reducing the landscape down to planes of colour that blend effortlessly into each other, while still creating a sense of depth and space on the canvas.  In the centre of the composition we see a group of farmhouses painted in vivid dark brown and white, creating a focal point and drawing our eyes inward initially. As we shift our focus to the lower half of the composition where the fields have been depicted, angular shapes in soft colours fit together seamlessly like a jigsaw puzzle. Despite the angled shapes,  there is a distinct softness to it that makes it very visually pleasing. As we move upwards, a woodland sits behind the farmhouses, giving the composition a wonderful balance and sense of harmony. The artist has used the colour palette very skilfully to full effect, giving the picture a wonderful luminosity.

    The painting is housed in a simple gilt frame which suits it perfectly. The paining is in good condition. There is a light white vertical surface mark below the farmhouses, as shown in close up photos. The frame has some scuffing the left and top edges, but does not detract from its overall attractiveness.

  • Mountains

    Sold

    SOLD.

    A very striking mid century abstract modernist oil on canvas, painted in 1955.

    Blocks of colour skilfully contrasted against each other create a sense of depth and space. The artist has reduced what appears to be a mountainous landscape down to an abstract layout of coloured blocks, focussing on form, shape, pattern and line. We can almost feel the artist at work – creamy layers of paint applied with his brush, one stroke at a time, his wrist moving in a series of angles.  Punches of strong, deep colour juxtapose against lighter, creamier, areas. This painting is  indeed a very satisfying one to appreciate.

    The painting is housed in its original mid century wood frame, which suits it perfectly. Both painting and frame are in good vintage condition. The frame has some minor scuffs but this does not detract from its overall attractiveness.

  • Hens

    Sold

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A brilliantly executed mid century modernist oil composition, painted in 1959.

    Here the artist depicts 3 chickens, but has intentionally left out realistic details and has instead chosen to focus on the formal qualities of shape, line and colour. He has also incorporated lots of texture by using thick paint applied in quick successive motions. This playful picture has been skilfully executed and would make a wonderful addition to any interior.

    The painting is housed in a wood frame with a linen lined border. Both paining and frame are in good vintage condition. The frame has some minor scuffs to the left edge but this does not detract from its overall attractiveness.

  • Awash

    Sold

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    An elegant and textured mid century abstract composition in oil, painted in 1959.

    Abstract and non-representational in nature, the artist encourages us to focus instead on the materiality and motion of the paint and brushwork. Gestural marks have been applied in a considered manner, making sure to keep its balance and colour harmony.  Although very much subject to personal interpretation, we think the dynamism, textures and colours of this painting could be reminiscent of the sea and its reefs.

    The painting is housed in its original mid century frame with a linen border. The painting has some scattered craquelure, typical for a painting with thickly applied paint of this age. The paint layer is stable overall and both painting and frame are in good condition otherwise.

  • Lavender

    Sold

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A soothing and elegant abstract composition in oil, painted in 1969.

    This luxurious painting features soft, gentle colours, while still incorporating areas with great texture and depth. In the centre of the composition we have areas of impasto, where the paint has been thickly applied so its stands proud from the surface, creating an area of focus for the viewer. Our eyes are then gently led outwards towards to the more blended areas. Despite the composition not being of anything identifiable, this abstract piece has a very distinct emotional and aesthetic impact. We are encouraged to focus on the materiality of the paint, the colours, and the effect that has both visually and emotionally.

    This abstract painting would certainly elevate any interior space and add a touch of luxury.

    It is housed in a very complementary wood frame. Both painting and frame are in excellent vintage condition.

  • Over the Fields

    £410

    Available

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A large and textured mid century modernist landscape composition in oil, painted onto canvas.

    Expressionist and yet very detailed, textured brushwork creates the wonderfully balanced composition of a long farmhouse within a rural landscape. The farmhouse sits surrounded by fields and woodland, and the artist has used a very rich, earthy palette to create this composition. The textured way in which the paint has been applied conveys the rustic feel of the natural landscape.  The long composition gives us a sense of the expansiveness of this rural scene.

    This large painting is housed in its original mid century frame, which has a beautiful woven border. The painting is in very good vintage condition. The frame has a small nick to the top edge (as seen in the close up photo), but this does not detract from the overall appearance of the frame which is otherwise in good condition.

  • Purple Skies

    Sold

    SOLD.

    A beautifully executed mid century landscape composition in oil, painted in 1946.

    Here the artist has worked in a post impressionist style, emphasising symbolic content, formal order and structure. Using non naturalistic colours to paint the landscape before him, the artist has used colour to incorporate an emotional and aesthetic response. The artist has also emphasised the paint on the surface of the canvas, flattening the sense of perspective through a lack of tonal modelling, and using planes and blocks of contrasting colour to create a sense of depth.

    The painting is housed in a gilt frame that enhances the painting. Both painting and frame are in excellent vintage condition.

  • Set of 4 Oils

    £1,100

    The idea of topography is of central importance and is explored through continuing walking projects. These serve as opportunities to gather diverse source material through physical and emotional interactions with whichever environment chosen to traverse. It amounts to a kind of urban and rural wandering where the information gathered is reinterpreted or reimagined feeding into a deep connection with landscape, arrangements of ancient monuments, light, shadow and forgotten histories – all of these elements find a way into the work.

  • Greek Coast

    Sold

    SOLD

    Free UK shipping.

    A large and atmospheric mid century composition in oil, depicting a coastal sunset in Rhodes, Greece.

    Painted in an expressionist manner, gestural brushwork creates this picturesque composition of a coastal sunset. Two coastal rocks flank the left side and are painted in a reddish brown colour with orange highlights, signalling the beginning of the evening light. The sun can be seen in the middle of the composition, its rays reflecting off the calm water at low tide.

  • Winter Boats

    Sold

    SOLD.

    A large and very atmospheric mid century oil composition, painted in 1967.

    Two boats sit quietly on the ice, a static but powerful image. The red and black of the boats contrast starkly against the white and light blue of the ice. Thickly applied layers of paint capture the robustness and depth of the winter ground. We can imagine the artist moving his paint brush in a dance across the surface, building up the layers slowly but surely.  Two thirds of the composition is dedicated purely to the white icy ground, giving us a sense of the expansiveness of the wintery landscape.

    The painting is housed in a stunning wide profile frame with an inner gilt border that further illuminates the painting. Both painting and frame are in good vintage condition.

  • Horses on the Meadow

    £380

    Available

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A beautifully executed mid century composition in oil, painted in 1949.

    In this picture, we see a a group of animals including a horse grazing on the meadow. Long, gestural brushstrokes fill the canvas with thick paint, creating a wonderfully textured effect.  The artists skilful and expressive brushwork blends the paint beautifully to create the three dimensional forms of the animals. It is clear that the artist has incorporated more than just the visual scene before him – we get a sense of the way the light hits the meadow, the slight wind in the air, the movement of the sky above and the blades of the grass below.

    This excellent painting is housed in a solid wood frame which adds to its ‘country’ appeal. Both painting and frame are in very good vintage condition.

  • Country in Colour

    Sold

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A small but very striking mid century semi-abstract composition in oil.

    Reminiscent of the 20th century modernist style of ‘fauvism’, this painting features the classic fauve feature of separating colour from its descriptive, representational purpose and allowing it to exist on the canvas as an independent element. In this picture, the colour establishes a structure within the work without being true to the natural world. Its brushstrokes also carry the fauve style of being short and separated, creating a sense of movement within the picture.

    Vivid, expressive colours and spontaneous brushwork contained within a small composition create a piece that would stand out in any interior. It would work as a single piece in a small space that needed a lift, but would also work well as part of a group hang.

    The painting is housed in an off white painted wood frame that enhances its vintage character. Both painting and frame are in good vintage condition.

  • Spanish Evening

    Sold

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    An excellently executed mid century semi abstract oil on board, painted in 1959 by well known  artist Ivar Morsing.

    Three figures working the land are depicted against an abstract background. A deep, rich and vivid palette of browns, orange, black and greens give this picture its punch. Contrasting blocks of saturated colour have been applied to the surface, illustrating the artist’s cubist influences, which he is most known for. This gorgeous semi-abstract painting in oil would certainly stand out in any interior, whether traditional or modern.

    The painting is beautifully framed in deep blue frame with an ornate gilt inner section. The frame really enhances the piece and brings out the rich colours in the painting. Both frame and painting are in excellent vintage condition.

  • Pears

    Sold

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A brilliantly executed  mid century still life in oil, painted by the established artist Eric Cederberg.

    Thick swirls of creamy paint form the background of the top half of the composition, and then below this we have a darker brown area with outlines in thick strokes that mimic the appearance of wood grain. Contrasted against this earthy palette are three bright and vivid pears, still connected to their branches and their ochre leaves. There is a beautiful balance to the horizontal composition, which Cederberg is known to be adept at achieving.

    Cederberg was a Swedish artist who made his debut on the art world in Helsingborg in 1922.  Later he participated in the  Skåne Art Association Exhibition in 1926 and the  Swedish Public Art Society exhibition in Stockholm in 1941. He is represented in several public collections in Sweden.

    This painting is housed in an absolutely gorgeous champagne frame with a wide profile. The painting has some scattered craquelure but is stable overall and is in good condition otherwise. The frame is in good vintage condition.

  • Colour Composition

    Sold

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A large and colourful mid century abstract composition, painted in oil onto canvas and dated 1967.

    This abstract expressionist composition features a myriad of gestural brushstrokes in a vivid array of colours. We get a sense of the artist’s brush and the vigour in the way it moves on the canvas, applying sections of colour in quick and swift strokes. Yet the composition and the overall balance of colours and the way they have been placed on the canvas is carefully considered, creating a picture that has a distinct harmony, balance and vividness.

    The painting is housed in a simple wood frame. Both painting and frame are in good vintage condition.

    A fun and playful 1972 limited edition (159/360) coloured lithograph, signed by Lennart Rodhe.

    £460

    Available

    Free UK Shipping.

    A large and very well executed 1959 limited edition (28/30) lithograph, signed by Waldemar Sjölander.

    The artist uses  tonal gradation, outlines, and shapes to create this playful composition. The figure is fragmented into several three dimensional forms, and plays on optical illusion. The artist converges the shadows of the figure with its three dimensional form, teasing our eyes which weave in and out of the shapes.

    This mid century print is laid onto a white mount, and housed behind glass in a very complementary gilt frame. Both print and frame are in good vintage condition.

  • The Boat

    Sold

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A small, mid century oil on board, painted in 1957.

    A seemingly simple yet very effective composition of a boat, painted in a semi abstract manner. The artist has  applied bold, broad and textured brushstrokes on the board, in deep, rich, vivid colours. Through the use of colour, the artist suggests to the viewer that this is a scene at sunset. The horizontal brushstrokes in the background  start off in a palette of blues, suggesting the sea, and then as we move upwards, the artist has incorporated reds, pinks, yellows, and orange tones to capture the sunset sky.

    The painting is housed in a wide profile wood frame with visible grain. Both painting and frame are in good vintage condition.

  • Village Walk

    £380

    Available

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A striking mid century street scene, painted in oil onto canvas.

    Executed in an expressionist style, the artist has used broad and expressive brushstrokes in an array of earthy colours to create this composition. Subtle tonal variations and a skilful use of complementary colours create a sense of depth as well as light and shadow. A group of figures can be seen in the foreground, and behind them sit several light coloured houses. At the top of the composition we see the rolling hills in deeper darker colours.

    The painting is housed in a wood frame with an outer dark border which complements the painting beautifully. Both painting and frame are in very good vintage condition.

  • The Lane

    Sold

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A large and very well executed modernist landscape in oil, painted in 1995.

    Simple in composition yet complex in execution, the artist has used large planes of contrasting colour to create a sense of depth and space in the picture. Layers of colour have been blended skilfully, giving the paintings its bright and luminous quality. The artist has chosen to focus on form, shape and line in this composition, bringing our attention to the way the different elements (the house, the trees, the field and the lane) play with each other and almost fit together like a jigsaw puzzle.

    This very satisfying oil painting is housed in a gilt frame which complements it very well. The painting is in excellent vintage condition. There is some light scuffing to the left side of the frame, as well as a small area of paint loss to the lower right corner of the frame (as seen in close up photo). Neither of these imperfections detract from the overall attractiveness of the piece.

  • Gentil

    £480

    Available

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A soothing mid century lake landscape in oil, painted onto canvas.

    Soft pastel colours have been applied in an expressive manner, creating a composition of a calming lake scene. There is almost a watercolour-like effect, where the artist has managed to very skilfully capture the reflective nature of the water. The artist has also captured the effect of light and movement in the landscape, giving us the sense that he has painted the picture ‘en plein air’ (the practice of painting a picture outdoors).

    The painting is housed in a simple wood frame which complements it beautifully. Both painting and frame are in excellent vintage condition.

  • The Crossing

    Sold

    SOLD.

    A confidently executed and beautifully textured mid century landscape with reindeer, painted in oil onto board.

    This painting is both reminiscent of the post-impressionist style of artists like Van Gogh, as well as of Fauvist painters like  André Derain. It features thick, bold, undisguised brushstrokes in vibrant colours, and is very much a subjective, emotional response to the landscape (as opposed to just painting the landscape as realistically as possible). That being said, the artist has managed to strike a find balance between an emotional response and capturing the scene before him and how it looked. The combination of the texture and colouring of this painting makes it a stand out piece.

    The painting is also housed in an excellent castleton green frame with an inner white border. The painting is in excellent vintage condition. There are some losses to the lower section of the inner white border of the frame that are only visible upon close inspection. These losses do not detract from the overall attractiveness of the piece.

  • Vista

    Sold

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A panoramic mid century landscape, painted in oil onto canvas.

    This long and very restful landscape features short and expressive brushstrokes in an array of soft colours. A row of white stepping leads our eyes leftwards and upwards along the bottom edge of the composition, reaching the area of sloping layered greens. This then takes our view back downwards towards what appears to be a pond or lake on the right side of the composition.

    This painting has a very soothing effect and would suit a bedroom or above-the-bed wall perfectly.

    The painting is housed in a beautiful gilt frame. Both painting and frame are in excellent vintage condition.

  • Fortify

    Sold

    SOLD.

    A large and very striking mid century abstract composition painted in oil.

    Our eyes are initially drawn towards the right side of the composition, where darker, wider and more controlled brushstrokes mark the canvas vertically. As our eyes move leftwards, these strokes become looser, less controlled and more discordant. The composition is a skilful balance of spontaneity and tight control, and conveys strong emotion and perhaps the inner impulses of the artist.

    The painting is housed in a dark gilt frame which suits it very well. The painting is in excellent vintage condition. The frame has some marks, mainly to the lower edge, but these do not at all detract from the main painting.

    Size: 57 x 91 cm (including frame)

  • Abstract Still Life

    £450

    Available

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A large and striking mid century modernist semi abstract still life in oil, painted in 1955.

    Large and gestural sweeping brushstrokes contrast against thin, angular outlines in black. 2 bottles in the middle ground are discernible, alluding to the fact that the scene pictured before us is a still life of objects on a table. The artist employs some cubist elements too, flattening out the scene and incorporating multiple views to create this abstracted and fragmented scene.

    The painting is housed in a painted wood frame, with visible grain. Both painting and frame are in good vintage condition.

  • Boys

    Sold

    SOLD.

    An excellently executed semi abstract mid century portrait, painted in oil onto board.

    The artist has used a vivid and bold colour palette, incorporating areas of thick impasto for added effect and three dimensionality. The features of the figures have been left out, focusing instead on the shape and form of them, giving this painting a timelessness. There is an innocence to the way the artist has painted the figures, capturing the youth of the figures.

    The painting is housed in a silver frame which has an inner linen lining. Both painting and frame are in good vintage condition. The frame has some very minor scuffs which are only noticeable upon close inspection.

  • Mauve

    Sold

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A small but compelling mid century abstract, painted in oil onto board.

    There is a very satisfying sense of movement and rhythm within the composition, created through sweeping gestural brushstrokes. Areas of impasto (where the paint is applied thickly and so stands proud from the surface) give the painting its texture and depth. The painting is reminiscent of vigorous waves of an ocean, or of a mountain landscape with wind and snow. Either way,  there is a palpable feeling of nature and its forces.

    The painting is housed in its original mid century frame with a dark wood inner window, and a gilt outer border. Both painting and frame are in good vintage condition.

  • Beyond the Trees

    Sold

    SOLD.

    A luscious and striking semi-abstract mid century landscape in oil, painted in 1961 by well known Swedish artist Ivar Morsing.

    In this picture, deep, rich, vivid greens juxtapose beautifully against the yellows and creams of the foreground and sky.

    Though no realistic details are present, the artist skilfully conveys the forms of the landscape such that we are able to discern them. Thick swirls of green in a range of tones make up the forms of the trees, creating areas of impasto that add texture and three dimensionality to the painting. Morsing punctuates the composition with a light coloured building in the distance, giving our eyes a focal point as well as adding a distinct sense of depth that lead our eyes in and around the picture.

    There is a palpable ‘softness’ to the way Morsing has painted the landscape, which is distinctive of his style (to see other paintings by Morsing in our collection click here).

    This oil on canvas is in very good vintage condition. It is housed in its original mid century gilt frame red undertones. The frame has some general wear and paint loss, commensurate with age.

  • Sunset View

    Sold

    SOLD.

    A nostalgic mid century landscape in oil, painted onto canvas.

    A row of small houses sit atop mountains looking over the landscape. A tree punctuates the middle of the foreground, giving our eyes a focal point. To the left of the composition we see cyprus trees standing tall, and as we move further into the back of the composition, a row of mountains sit underneath the sunset sky. The artist has captured a moment where it is not long before the light is lost and night begins. The sun sits just below the horizon, and this time of twilight casts a purple tinge onto the landscape.

    This scene exudes a feeling of nostalgia and tenderness, while being really calm and restful.

    This oil on canvas is housed in its original mid-century wood frame with an inner silver window that makes the painting stand out. The painting is in excellent vintage condition.  The window on the frame has areas of general wear and paint loss, commensurate with age.

  • Trees by Blue

    Sold

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A large, expressive and textured winter landscape composition, painted in oil onto canvas.

    Confident, gestural brushstrokes fill the majority of the picture, giving the painting a wonderful sense of depth and complexity. The white layers over the tonal gradations of blue give the painting a luminosity – conveying the sense that certain areas of the snow are reflecting light from the sun above. To the right in the distance we see a set of farm houses, and to the left the picture is punctuated by 3 trees, painted in boldly.

    The painting is housed in a mid century wood frame. The painting has some craquelure present to the left side, but the paint layer is stable overall. The frame has some age toning and general wear commensurate with age, and is also stable.
