Offered is a boldly colored still life by Gustaf Herbert Carlsson (Swedish, 1912-1991). Carlsson was largely self-taught artist active from the 1930's onward. He was greatly influenced by French painters such as Cezanne and Vuillard and is best known for his colorful still lifes. The artist is represented in the Vanersborg Museum and Osterlund Museum collections, both in Sweden.
The painting is a heavily textured oil on masonite-type board and measures 15" x 18" unframed and 19" x 22" framed. The frame is new and is a beautiful mocha-colored molding with faint gilding on the lip and edge and faint broken gold leaf lines over the surface. The painting is signed lower left and dates to c. 1955. Condition is generally excellent... the painting has been cleaned and re-varnished and is ready to hang. The reverse shows that a corner of the panel was dog-eared at some point and firmed up with what looks like gesso. This is not visible on the front but I am nonetheless noting it for completeness and a photo is provided as well. All in all, the painting is a colorful, dynamic work that will look great on any wall.
