Ake Wickstrom, March Day By The Pond In Vekerum, Sweden

A chilly 20th-century oil on canvas by Swedish artist, Ake Wickstrom (b.1927). Bold expressive marks are laid down with energy and liberal use of impasto. Wickstrom has brought the scene to life with confident brushwork and a gorgeous Autumnal palette.

Vekerum is a picturesque rural area in south Sweden.

The painting is signed/dated in the lower right and housed within a frame that’s almost certainly its original. The frame is quite basic and possibly created by the artist themselves.

Medium: Oil on canvas
Overall size: 26½” x 21½” / 67cm x 55cm
Year of creation: 1978
Provenance: Sweden
Condition: Artwork in good condition. Frame with age-related wear.

Conservation & History

We care profoundly about our role as custodians and every piece in the collection has been assessed by our conservator. When required, we undertake professional restoration carefully using reversible techniques and adopt a light touch to retain the aged charm of each work. We also restore frames rather than replace them as many are original and selected by the artists themselves.
