Mid century Cubist influenced painting of a boatyard, probably in the Swedish Archipelago. The restful palette of soft blues and greys contrasts with the strong blocks of red and yellow. An attractive painting which would enhance any wall.
Signed Richard Borklund 1897-1974. Borklund was initially a house painter but started studying art in the 1920's, eventually studying in Paris, where he was influenced by the Cubists. He travelled widely in Europe and exhibited extensively in Sweden. He is now much sought after.

WHAT I SELL
I only buy works that I like and would happily live with; most of what I sell is vintage and decorative and will therefore show some marks of time. For me that is part of the charm but please make sure you have examined the photos carefully and are fully aware of any imperfections!
I buy art for you to live with and love. Some will be by named artists but much of the art I sell is by unknown artists. where I do know who it's by I will tell you what I know.
I carry a few contemporary works but do not represent any artists.
I try to keep the original frames, firstly for environmental reasons and secondly, as people have such different ideas on framing. Some frames will therefore be a bit imperfect but if there is anything major I will always draw your attention to it. The price of the artwork you are buying is solely the picture itself: I include the frames as an extra at no charge. There are a huge number of wonderful framers around but if you need help I can always help you find someone.
