Oil painting by Flemming Lipholt - 1966

Like this item and want one just like it? and we will contact you when something similar is available.

In this abstract oil on canvas, artist Flemming Lipholt (1925-1995) has opposed cool and warm earthy colours. Sweeping gestures of paint collide and run over each other to further emphasise the dramatic atmosphere of this painting. Areas of the canvas are layered with thick paint, giving a sense of three-dimensional form and also conveying to us that the artist genuinely seems to have enjoyed exploring the textural qualities of paint.

The text on the reverse of the canvas describes an annual exhibition held in the Den Frie building, in which Flemming Lipholt was showing alongside seven other artists. Den Frie Udstilling is Denmark's oldest artists' association and the mid-century marked the first time that abstract art such as Lipholt’s was seriously represented.
