Berlin, Sven 1911-1997 Attributed to, British AR, Two Paintings: Portrait of an Old Man & Two Men

Description:

Berlin, Sven 1911-1997 Attributed to, British AR, Two Paintings: Portrait of an Old Man & Two Men. Portrait of an Old Man. 17.75 x 9.25 ins., Two men: 17 x 8 ins., both Oil on Board, Monogram front right. The vendor bought the two paintings at Roseberys as fully catologued by Sven Berlin, since then they have been queried by one person. Two Men has a little damage. Sven Berlin was one of the characters in the Cornish art scene and a man of many talents, painter, sculptor, writer and poet. Sven was a man of strong views and was involved in a number of libel suits, let alone bouts of fisticuffs after publishing books about St. Ives. He was one of life's genuine Bohemians with rather too much talent for his own good. His paintings and sculptures are always interesting and usually strong. (2)
