About

A wonderful informal abstract modernist painting signed by German artist Walter Wohlschlegel (1907-1999) in 1986. Painted on canvas, Wohlschlegel creates an interesting color play, most notably, where the flat color fields of pastel blues, turquoise and pinks cross with the bright blue, green, red shapes and outlines whilst the negative space is filled with strokes of mustard yellow. There is an almost graffiti artist quality to this painting and rather interesting that the artist was almost in his 80s at this time. Wohlschlegel painted from the 1930s right up until the late 1990s with only a short break to serve as a soldier in Greece during the Second World War. Two years after his return he moved to settle in Freiburg in south West Germany, close to the French boarder. Wohlschlegel started to paint in a style somewhere between the movements of pop art and color field painting.
