1965, Large Still Life, 'Red Tulip and Blue Bird.'

Large, post impressionist Swedish Oil Painting dated 1965. Some amazing colours in this piece and some smashing applications of paint. Cyans are woven into aquamarines on the table cloth. Space Hopper coloured oranges on a blue plate. A fantastical bird with a fanned tail perches on a pea green cupboard. The paint is thickly applied almost in a basket weave format particularly in the background. We particularly love the oddly sized, dining chair with its striped cushion.
