'Unload the catch on the beach of Normandy'
Oil on panel, 27 x 35 cm
Signed: lower left 'p.r'
Patrick Reutersvård (1886-1971)

This painting in attractive colours, made by the Swede Patrick Reutersvård, fascinates us from the first moment. The scene on the beach of Normandy is laid down with firm strokes, which typifies exactly the character of the tough fishermen, who braved the weather, rough seas and high waves. They are unloading the catch of the day on the beach, while two women are idly watching and the sun slowly sinks into the sea. Striking is the colour palette, an important feature of the paintings, made by this artist.

His work is very versatile and includes still lifes (with flowers, fruit or earthenware pots), landscapes (often picturesque Swedish areas, but also more airy landscapes with a Mediterranean atmosphere), beach scenes (which, for example, abandoned fishing huts and hanging nets to dry are shown), cityscapes (like a narrow lane or an extensive square somewhere in Stockholm). He also paints intimate interiors (often with girls or women) and active people, like a woman behind a sewing machine or a girl embroidering. His technique is mainly oil on canvas or panel.

Patrick Reutersvård is born in the village of Knutson and deceased in Växjö. He follows courses in the Swedish Valand and in Paris. His many foreign study trips go most frequently to France, Italy and Spain, where the southern light and colours of the Mediterranean inspire him time and again.

His works are included in many museums in his homeland, inter alia the National Museum and Moderna Museet in Stockholm, the Göteborgs Konstmuseum and museums in Malmö, Norrköping, Väterås, Kalmar, Borås, Linköping, Gävle and Växjö. Also in Hamburg (Germany) hang paintings by his hand.
