Antoni Kierpal, Portrait Of A Fisherman

Antoni Kierpal, Portrait Of A Fisherman

A bright impressionistic portrait of a fisherman by Polish artist, Antoni Kierpal (1898-1960). The oils are layered on thickly creating texture throughout and the boats are simply a few quick brush-marks.

Kierpal enjoyed painting coastal scenes and some of his work is held in the National Museum of Szczecin, Poland.

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.
