This is a bright, vibrant mid-century modern impasto style oil on canvas painting featuring an abstract landscape scene. It is an industrial energy with an urban feel, and it appears to possibly be a rendering of a city waterway. The main hues of tangerine orange, ochre, and sunshine yellow are emphasized even more boldly with the jet black lines and white contrast. The painting is signed by Van Hoople, a Chicago-born artist well known for his many paintings in line with this abstract, modernist aesthetic. He is often lauded due to his work as a set designer for Paramount Pictures in California working under Cecil B. Demille.
The painting is in excellent vintage condition with minor age-appropriate wear such as craquelure throughout and changes to color/richness consistent with age, display, and storage.
The painting measures 33 1/4 inches wide and 45 1/4 inches long.
