A floral still life with a pronounced modernist technique, 22" by 17 1/2" (25 1/2" by 21" framed), signed at lower right and again on the reverse of the Masonite panel, by listed Swedish artist AXEL WERNER EKELUND (1919-). This is a highly decorative and colorful work, and the modern handling of the subject matter makes it a perfect fit with Mid Century furnishings. The artist is known for a wide range of subject matter---interiors, landscape, figures. He was a graphic artist as well. Ekelund studied in Sweden and then at the Academie de la Grande Chaumiere in Paris. Many known works date to the late 1940's and early 1950's, but he was apparently still painting at least into about the 1980's. A number of Swedish museums hold the artist's work in their collections Affixed to the reverse is a printed information piece including a photo of the artist at his easel. Condition is excellent.
