'The Guitarist', oil on board, Berlin School (circa 1940s - 1960s). Despite the apparent flatness of the composition, it suggests depth with pronounced colours and tile-like quadrants of varying sizes behind the guitarist. The fragmentation of the primary figure retains its connection to reality and does not give way completely to geometrical abstraction. The composition is harmonious in its symmetry and prism of colour. A truly formidable work of art that pays homage to the cubist masters yet retains its originality and style. The artwork is in good vintage condition in a new frame with elegant, linen slip. Some fading of colour and blemishing is to be expected with a work of this age as it simply adds vintage character. Upon request a video of the piece will be provided. Unsigned.
About the Artist: Our gallery has access to a cache of paintings from Berlin in the 1940s - 1960s. What we know of these artworks is derived from our source from whom we've obtained this piece along with several others. Regrettably the artwork is unsigned and is therefore impossible to deduce anything about the artist's background or aspirations.
