Large Original Vintage Oil on Canvas Painting

A dreamy suggestion of a woman wearing a hat with a signature large eye, she appears to be holding a bunch of yellow flowers.

Painted largely in impasto.

Signed ‘Somville’ and dated ‘1974’ in the lower left.

Somville was an advocate for realism and was against abstraction as he thought it de-humanised art. He was a communist and also wrote extensively both about art and politics. He was a great mural painter and exhibited worldwide.

‘A Belgian Painter of an expressive and monumental style, concerned by the realities of the contemporary world.’ - LAROUSSE Grand Dictionnaire Encyclopédique.

Framed in a silvered and ebonised wooden frame.

The painting is generally in good vintage order with no real damage to speak of. There is a small amount of wear to the frame. Please see photos.

Overall measurements: 79cm x 65cm x 5cm.


  • H: 79cm (31.10in)
  • W: 65cm (25.59in)
  • D: 5cm (1.97in)
