1944 Landscape, 'Summer at Oxie,' Karl Enock Ohlsson
£595.00 Sold out
1944, oil landscape on panel by Swedish artist, Karl Enock Ohlsson (1889 - 1958).
This atmospheric landscape depicts a summer day at Oxie, a small, Swedish village just outside Malmo. Painted en plain air, this delicious, post impressionist, oil painting encompasses a lazy sunny day. Clouds hang in a duck egg sky, emerald hills sweep in ribbons, foreground grasses created from energetic sweeps of buttercup and eau de nile. A red-roofed house breaks the horizontal plains.
