Very nice blue abstract modern painting on board, painted by Rudolf Wolf in 1961. 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 for something totally different as his later work, its a nice blue and black/grey abstract painting on board. This was made in 1961 and is signed Wolf ’61 at the right upper corner. It has a (new) black wooden frame. A nice detail of this work is the back, this contains an old painting that he probably didnt find good enough, but its still there and visible at the back. So its actually 2 paintings in 1! The artwork is in good condition and would look highly decorative.

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.
