Modern Art & Design presents "På stranden, Kylbergshus"/"Le Rivage" av Carl Kylberg

Carl Kylberg

"På stranden, Kylbergshus"/"Le Rivage", 1940

Carl Kylberg sought expression for the spiritual, universal, and common human experience in his paintings. This "search" also evoked a strong sense of timelessness in his works. Kylberg was preoccupied with philosophical thoughts about human existence, life, and journey on earth, and he never aimed for naturalistic interpretations but rather saw it as his task to become an interpreter of the deeper underlying reality. He wanted to convince people that their soul's eyes could also see.

By painting dry-on-dry, Kylberg creates a suggestive feeling that draws the viewer's gaze towards infinity. As often in Carl Kylberg's artistry, the time depicted is taken from the slowly emerging transition between night and day. The auction's painting is executed in a technique and colour characteristic of Kylberg, where he creates a feeling that the motif and thus the colours vibrate.

In the auction's painting "På stranden, Kylbergshus" executed in 1940, the viewer encounters a brilliant example of Kylberg's ability to highlight and enhance nature's own colours. The warm palette is painted with sweeping brushstrokes, and the contours are, according to Kylberg's characteristic, blurred, but they interact rather than merge.
