This striking modernist oil painting features bold earthy colours and confident, painterly brushwork. There is an expressiveness in the way in which the artist has painted the landscape reflecting the ruggedness of the landscape and the old red houses. Flat planes of contrasting colour create a sense of depth, and areas of the substrate have been left uncoloured a reminder of the distinctly modernist ethos that a painting, before it is a landscape of houses and mountains, is first and foremost a set of colours and forms arranged in a certain order on a flat surface. The painting is housed in a typically mid century wood frame, with a lined lined border and a gilded inner window. It has some scattered areas of paint loss, as well as at the top corners of the board, but due to the style of the work the paint losses are not remarkable.
The painting is otherwise in good vintage condition. Size: 30 x 37 cm (including frame).
