An abstract, geometric drawing with a serene energy, by Bengt Orup.
Orup (1916-1996), was one of the leading figures in post-war modernism in Sweden. He trained in both Sweden and Paris, and returned to his native country to work and teach. He is also well-known for the glass he made. His work is widely collected: there are examples in the permanent collections of the Moderna museet, the MOMA, the Victoria and Albert Museum and many more.
Signed and dated, in a simple white frame measuring 16 1/2″ x 13 1/2″.
