Very nice abstract modern painting on canvas, painted by Rudolf Wolf in 1952. Rudolf Wolf (1919-1989) did graphic school, and technical building school, after that he became an industrial designer, he worked a lot with Wim Rietveld and Friso Kramer during the 1950s and 1960s. Some famous chairs he designed for Elsrijk in the end of the 1950s, but the price winning Gamma Chair for van Gaasbeek & Tiel is probably his most famous design item. Rudolf Wolf called himself an architect, industrial designer and constructivist. After his industrial period he started as a free lance designer and from 1970 an artist. He made a lot of huge sculptures and paintings for big companies, schools and government buildings. Mostly in RVS, lucite, glass and aluminum, that’s often to see in his paintings, same colors and shapes were used.
This is one of some scarce artworks he made, we acquired a large collection of his work directly from the widow of Rudolf Wolf, some works have been in their personal collection and was never offered for sale before! This is one of my favorites of the collection, a very nice and early painting on canvas of a torso and fruit bowl. Very nice sober coloring used, artwork is signed at the rigt corner, Wolf ’52. The painting has some craquelé but it doesn bother me because this piece is over 60 years old. Nice and original aluminum frame.
All his works are sold with certificate of origin as not all of the works are signed. We also have a large photo archive where some works are on, or parts of it, or similar works.
