Product Description

Victor Mathias (British, 20th century)

River Landscape, 1940

Oil on card, 97 mm x 158 mm

Signed V Mathias lower left, signed and dated verso, V Mathias, Feb: 1940.

The support has a slight horizontal curve, and is formed of a cut-down carton for Tate & Lyle granulated sugar.

The work forms part of an extensive series of pictures by Victor Mathias, which evoke a calm and idyllic landscape, reminiscent of southern France, with trees and rivers bathed in a soft golden light. These small landscapes are painted with confidence and bravura in a kind of urgent visual shorthand. Dabs of paint and a mixture of fluid and dry media are built up to give a rich texture and tonal range.
