Kersti Flyckt, Forest Landscape

Kersti Flyckt, Forest Landscape

A colourful mid-century oil on canvas depicting a dense forest by Swedish artist, Anna Kerstin "Kersti" Flyckt (1925-2009). Tall slender trees provide strong vertical lines while the forest floor comes alive with bold horizontal marks.

This is a good example of Flyckt’s finest work - it’s created with confidence and liberal use of impasto.

Flyckt studied at Konstgillet's painting school in Borås and undertook several study trips through Scandinavia. She’s known predominantly for her landscape paintings but also created wall decorations in metal.

The painting is signed in the lower right and housed within a frame that’s probably its original.
