About

'Still Life with Fruit', oil on board, by an artist with initials 'T.N.', from Berlin School (circa 1960s). A stunning, conceptual composition depicting a bowl with fruit on a table. The backdrop horizontal paint strokes conjure up the outdoors - a blustery day perhaps as seen through a window beyond the table. The fruit is beautifully painted inviting the viewer to snatch a juicy piece from the bowl. Harmonious, balanced, colourful and inviting - a delightful and collectible work of art. It is in good overall condition having been newly framed with a French-style linen slip. It is initialed 'T.N.' in the lower right hand corner. Upon request a video of the artwork may be provided. About the Art: Our gallery has access to a cache of paintings from the 1940s to the 1970s attributed to an art collective whose traces start with Germany. Berlin to start, but also Dresden, along the Saale, Weimar, Brera in Milan and Brussels. From the post-war period and onwards, they hosted young people who experimented with different painting techniques with exceptionally creative results. Over the years, dedicated art-seekers managed to unearth a treasure trove of these works from forgotten repositories. Once examined, the paintings were presented first to the Italian art market and then beyond, to art lovers in Europe and the United States. Quietly, but surely, word of mouth scattered the news of the existence of these found artworks: cubist, expressionist, futurist and avant-garde. Trying to label these pieces doesn’t do them justice truly, but to call them studies, sketches, or simply, creations, would be more accurate. It is interesting to note the artworks were very often unsigned, but often as not, initialled or monogrammed. Often using known masterpieces as reference, their mentors suggested a particular style with which to experiment. Regrettably, this makes it impossible to pinpoint who amongst these bright creatives ‘made it’ in the world of art. But it really doesn’t matter. Each piece we've selected is extraordinary and therein lies the interest in these works. Notwithstanding that, several galleries have acquired and are now selling these works. This clearly speaks to the widespread assessment of the quality and interest of the art. Today, the artists’ creations hang on the walls of art lovers in London, Paris, New York, Hong Kong, Miami and Los Angeles. Galleries scramble to acquire the works having recognised the outstanding potential in the international art markets for these pieces with such fascinating origins.
