20thc Painting, 'Blue Nude,' Frank Simcock

20thc Painting, 'Blue Nude,' Frank Simcock (1949-?)

Beautiful structured nude by British artist Frank Simcock.

Awash with blues, school knickers, Smarties and Liquorice Allsorts (the bobbly one). This exceptional nude is breathtaking, from the exaggerated curve of her neck and the oversized form of her hand she reclines heavily on graphic patchwork.

The painting is delicious with short, chalky stretches of strokes, a flash of pumpkin across her cheek and peony-pillow lips.

Original gilt frame, supplied free of charge.
