Expressionist Still Life, Oil on Canvas, California, 1940s


With influences of Fauvism and Cubism, this American expressionist oil painting on canvas is done in heavily-applied, vibrant and saturated colors, with an abstracted subject of fruits arranged in bold composition. It is unsigned, but the stretcher and canvas show evidence of its age and origin. There are obvious influences of Picasso, Braque and Matisse in it, as well as a 1940s summer in California. The painting makes a strong statement despite its modest size. It conveys presence and emotion through brushstrokes, color and capture of light. It is an affordable way to add a bit of art history to your home or office. It is unframed. You can frame it to your own taste to match your decor, or we can frame it for you. The wooden stretcher has an imprint of "Michaels Artist Supplies, 6553 Sunset Blvd. Hollywood 28 Cal."
