'The Parting II' by Elisabeth Hoffova (1967)
'The Parting II', gouache on fine art paper (1967) by Elisabeth Hoffova. A unique mid-century modernist painting with vivid colours, impeccable technique and intriguing subject matter. 'The Parting II' depicts three figures - two men and a woman. Symbolically, the two men are separated by the smiling woman in the middle who is seemingly enjoying what is transpiring in the scene. The vivid blues and red represent both the frigid atmosphere and the emotions of the moment. This gallery holds another related work by Hoffova in the same style of frame. Together they would be ideal to form a small coherent collection. You are encouraged to inquire about its pair. In good vintage condition with some minor blemishing commensurate with age. Signed in the lower lefthand: 'Hoffova 7-67'. The frame is glazed and is entirely original and beautiful in its own right in fair condition with characterful markings, cracks, nicks and blemishes. Please see accompanying photos. Upon request a video of the piece will be provided.
