'A New Beginning' by Elisabeth Hoffova (circa 1960s)
'A New Beginning', gouache on fine art paper by Elisabeth Hoffova (circa 1960s). In the same style as other works by Hoffova held by this gallery, this is a mid-century modernist painting with vivid colours, impeccable technique and in this case, dramatic subject matter. 'A New Beginning' depicts a couple whose lives and relationship are in distress. The man, dressed in business suit, looks down as if tormented and in pain. His wife is in dramatic pose with a fiery, coloured backdrop. Like the final curtain in theatre, the end is coming to a romance that has lasted a very long time. This gallery holds other related works by Hoffova in the same style. Together they would be ideal to form a small, coherent collection. You are encouraged to inquire about the other works. This particular piece is in good vintage condition commensurate with age. Signed in the lower left hand: 'Hoffova'). The original characterful frame with glazing has minor cracks, splits and nicks commensurate with age. Please look at the many accompanying photos carefully to appreciate the work and its condition. Upon request a video of the piece can be provided.
