Paul Sterpin, Attic Room

Paul Sterpin, Attic Room

A wonderfully knackered early 20th-century post-impressionistic oil on canvas by Belgian artist, Paul Sterpin (1873-1952). 

With broad brushstrokes and a bold palette, Sterpin has created an atmospheric depiction of a bedroom that's reminiscent of a Van Gogh painting. The composition cleverly draws your eye towards the bright window and then down towards the bed, which is partially obscured by a cabinet.

This piece is currently unframed but framing can be arranged if required. Alternatively, you may wish to simply prop it on a shelf or mantle.
