1951, 'Sea View, Lomma', Karl Enock Ohlsson

Serene, 1951, Swedish landscape by Karl Enock Ohlsonn (1889-1958). Some wonderful thick painting here, particularly in the copper coloured grasses bottom right. Lovely tones of heather on the roof tops of the little houses with dusty rose pinks and apple greens creating the horizontal fields. A Gustavien grey-blue sky painted with vertical strokes.
