Ruth Laakso
Ancient Land

Circa 1965


This captivating painting was produced by the Mid Century American artist, Ruth Laakso, circa 1965. It features a wealthy of earth tones- including taupes, emerald and moss tones. The surface has been painted in a heavy impasto, lending it a topographical feeling. This piece offers myriad evidence of the artist's hand in every well considered detail of its execution. This is truly a compelling painting- imbued with dynamism and realized in a subtle and sophisticated palate. It would be a winning acquisition for any collector looking for a large scale (and first-rate painting) at an incredibly accessible price point. It comes presented in a custom moon gold gallery frame (which creates a stunning contrast with the color scheme of the piece) and is in excellent condition. Signed lower left and verso by the artist. American, Circa 1965 Dimensions: 60.5"H X 50"W X 2"D
