Tage Hansson, Still Life With Paint Brushes, Sculpture & Bottles

Tage Hansson, Still Life With Paint Brushes, Sculpture & Bottles

An artist’s tools - brushes, a head to study, two bottles of wine and Martini. In the foreground, a small vessel for drinking with a floral design.

This unusual still life by Swedish artist, Tage Hansson (1889-1968), depicts a variety of disparate objects set upon a contrasting blue tablecloth. It’s stylish, modernist and perfect for a mid-century home.

Housed within a later frame and signed/dated.

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.
