SIGNED VINTAGE MID-20TH CENTURY FRENCH/BELGIAN LATE POST-IMPRESSIONIST OIL ON BOARD WINTERSCAPE IN ORIGINAL GRAY WASH, RAKED WOODEN FRAME W/WHITE LINER, INSCRIBED IN FRENCH & ENGLISH ON VERSO. W/REFERENCE TO THE FRENCH SCULPTOR JEAN ARP.
FRAME: 32 ½" Height x 27" Width. IMAGE: 22 ½" Width x 28" Height. ENGLISH: A'Beach' instead of an'Arp' but painted where he was born! Offered is this just discovered and absolutely untouched, estate fresh European Modernist oil on artist board.
It's an extraordinarily beautiful winterscape painting, featuring heavy impasto paint, mixed on the palette, as well as on the surface. The work is most likely either French or Belgian, since the artist board has an old 20 F (French franc) merchant's paper label with French writing affixed to the verso.
The artistic treatment, as well as the painting's conceptual attitude and approach, is entirely Post-Impressionist and finds its inspiration in earlier European Post-Impressionist art of the early 20th century and the revolutionary landscape paintings that came out of that movement. The scene features a large orange orb that is the sun, seemingly caught in the tangled, gnarled branches of barren trees, now devoid of leaves and foliage in the cold of winter.
The painting is really a celebration of white, with various sensitive and complex hues of mints and blues populating the entire piece. Incredibly beautiful and incredibly quiet. Very good to Excellent overall vintage condition.
