Harald Sallberg, Meditation

Harald Sallberg, Meditation

This intriguing and rather stylish etching by Swedish artist, Harald Sallberg (1895-1963) depicts an artist in his studio contemplating a large canvas. A quiet moment - taking it all in.

The composition is unusual - the easel draws the eye but the space creates a narrative. It alludes to the tension between an artist and his work - it’s the space in between, the intangible void.

The etching is signed/dated in the lower right and housed within a later frame.
