Large matted watercolor of abstract landscape by Yngve Olsen (1905-2000), American Modernist, one of many watercolors painted in the Southwest in the 1940s and 1950s. Measures: Mat is 22" x 17" and watercolor sheet is 16 3/4" x 13". Like many of his works from this collection, it is not signed, but is guaranteed to be by this artist. Contemporary archival matting with glassine over painting, the mat is a soft creamy yellow tone. Painted in the mid century modernist style, very much in the tradition of John Marin and Lionel Feininger, the artist has defty captured the strong forms and colors of landscapes in the Southwest. This image has very bold lines, with soft shades of brown and brighter spots to create a very artful scene. Yngve worked for Yale University as a researcher, and his painting collection was in the hands of the Springfield Museum of Art until 2014 when the entire group was sold at auction. Interest in his work is strong, as his skills as a watercolorist and his special artistic view are clearly unique and compelling. Condition is very good, the watercolor is tipped into an archival mat and backboard, protected by a glassine sheet. Colors are good, no damage to paper, sold as is.
