'Kneeling Nude and Mysterious Figure' (circa 1950s-60s)


SKU 0913

'Kneeling Nude and Mysterious Figure', oil on board, by unknown artist from the School of Berlin (circa 1950s-60s). It is difficult to decode what is developing in this Mid-Century painting depicting a nude female figure and white-suited man. The red blush on his face suggests a comic figure as a clown or jester. Or perhaps he represents a clergyman blushing at her nudity? In response, the woman has positioned herself away from him, chagrined, while maintaining her angular but protective pose. The symbolism used by the artist here, while uncertain, still manages to create a compelling spectacle in oil paint and a mysterious work of art. The work is in good vintage condition and has been newly framed with linen slip. Its signature in the lower right hand corner is regrettably, illegible. Please carefully view the accompanying photos to best assess the work's condition and style. Upon request, a short video clip may be provided.
