Wiedh Anshelm, Coastal View

Wiedh Anshelm, Coastal View

This 20th-century oil painting by Swedish artist, Wiedh Anshelm (b. 1897) captures the unlikely beauty of an overcast coastal sky. It’s a celebration of tranquillity - a moment of calm amid muted tones.

The water is aglow, gentle ripples illuminated by an ounce of breaking sun from behind a cloud. While intelligent horizontal marks increase in lightness as they multiply towards the horizon. They culminate in bright white.

There’s nothing here - the sea is almost motionless.

The painting is signed in the lower left and housed within a later frame.
