About this item
A vibrant and playful mid century cubist modernist composition in oil, painted on board.
With a focus on shape, colour and line, the artist has abstracted what appears to be a still life composition of drinking mugs and vessels, creating a fragmented effect. This stylisation and distortion is typical of the cubist ethos, rejecting the inherited concept that art should copy nature, and instead emphasising the two-dimensionality of the canvas. The artist has done this by reducing and fracturing objects into geometric forms, and then realigning these within a shallow, relief-like space, with multiple vantage points.
This oil on board is housed in very unique and well-suited gilt frame with an inner blue and gilt border. The painting is in excellent vintage condition, and the frame has slight paint loss to its blue border but this is in keeping with its vintage look.
