1950s signed British abstract oil on canvas.
Late 1950s oil on canvas. This powerful, expressive and gestural painting is in my opinion, truely terrific. A great example of post war, British abstraction. Energy, dynamism and more than a touch of anxiety that artists grappled with in the aftermath of WW2
Signed Murphy and then again Edward Murphy verso onto a 'New Painting in Devon" exhibition label. Further research required.
Some cracking to the thick impasto paint but intact and sound. The canvas is housed in its original, artists made frame.
