Oil painting by Karin Tholstrup

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

Karin Tholstrup (1924-2019) was a Danish painter, but travelled extensively throughout her life. She studied at the Academy of Arts in Copenhagen before taking up positions working in drawing studios in the city. She began by working as an architect before becoming a painter. She participated in a number of exhibitions, particularly in the 1970s and 80s which constitute her most prolific period of artistic output, including exhibitions showcasing women’s art.

Despite the usual orange and yellow hues that are dominant forces in her work, this piece balances both warmer and cooler tones. The still-life perspective is rendered through a soft, slightly blurred lens. Yet, its distinct, strong lines which contain sweeping brushstrokes inside them give the piece a kind of subtle geometric symmetry.
