Lively and and fun vintage Swedish painting of a Mediterranean street market. A figure in the foreground organises the fruit on sale at her stall, surrounded by different plants and flowers on adjacent stands which recede into the background. Colour is used delightfully in this painting, adding both softness in the brush strokes and a bright contrast between the greens, oranges and blues.
Signed Hans Ripa 1912-2001.
Oil on canvas in a vintage gilt wooden frame.

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.
