A stunning midcentury abstract oil on board by the listed artist William Ernst Burwell (1911-1974). It is beautifully painted with heavily applied textures of predominantly oranges and browns. It is in its original gallery frame of painted softwood and has the artists label to the reverse. We have obtained several of the artists works from his studio. Condition is very good, the original frame has bumped corners, some over-painting and some marks but is generally good.
The painter and stage designer William Ernst Burwell, FRSA was born in Kingston-upon-Hull, Yorkshire. He studied at Hull College of Art and Brighton School of Art and showed at the RA, NEAC and elsewhere in Britain and overseas. From 1940-1946 he served with the Essex Regiment and was subsequently employed at Pinewood Studios. The many film sets of the 1950s, 1960s and early 1970s on which he worked included 'Oliver Twist' and the 'Black Narcissus'. His work is in the permanent collection of the Imperial War Museum. 'Bunny' Burwell was a founder member of The Colne Group and also a member of The Free Painters Group. He lived at Turk's Head Court, Eton.
