A truly superb and intriguing 1930/40 abstract. We believe this mod brit masterpiece originates from the St Ives school that birthed the careers of legendary artists such as Ben Nicholson and Terry Frost. This painting is signed lower left but we have not been able to make out the signature. Judging from the age of the canvas and of course the unmistakable look we believe this painting could do with further research.

The condition is quite dusty with age with some small puncture marks but a clean and a sympathetic repair will transform this picture.

Please see images for further details. Please DM me directly to make an offer.

The St Ives School was a name given to a cadre of artists who lived and worked in the picturesque Cornish coastal town that came to international prominence after World War Two. It attracted many abstract artists to the area, and though their formal approaches fluctuated between semi and pure abstraction, members of the St Ives School took their inspiration from the unique West Cornwall landscape, using its shapes, natural surroundings and coluors to inspire their individual visions. Once Abstract art had been overtaken by Pop Art in the 1960s, the St Ives School was winding down but its proud legacy continues among collectors and museums and is kept infamously kept alive today through Tate St Ives gallery which opened in 1993 and takes pride of place on its seafront.
