A Piece of Work

That is quite the interesting piece of art.

So where do you get a piece like that? I’ve got a guess…

Yeah, looks like it’s an original.

The house itself is quite nice though:

Lovely modern home in a quiet wooded setting. Let’s just hope the art isn’t included in the sale.

    In general a great example of mid-century modern with what look to be tons of original decor pieces. But there are a few bits of… well… shall we say, “Say What Now?”

    – Say What Now item No.1: What is that even a painting of? I see a flag, a ribbon, and two hands, along with what looks like a smaller picture over the picture. Huh?
    – Say What Now item No.2: Ooh… I dunno about the zig-zag rug next to the diagonal paneling. (Pic 7)
    – Say What Now item No.3: Fun little Dutch colonial and not-at-all-mid-century shed out back in Pic 8. Could be the neighbors’, though.
    – Say What Now item No.4: What’s with the Louis XV armchair in Pic 16?
    – Say What Now item No.5: That’s some crazy wall decor in Pic 21. It looks pretty cool, but I wouldn’t want to be the one who has to dust it.

    Nice mid-century style match in the kitchen, but considering there are no windows a lighter cabinet color might have been a better choice. (Pic 12, 13)

    Finally, not sure which I love more, the window walls or the closet walls. Ahhh… a house with plenty of closet space! SOLD!!

  2. I love that back of the house and all the windows. I think it would be a pain to clean, but they make a room appear larger.

  3. @Emerald63: It’s been kept up well for a 1960s home. It’s all retro now like that old piece of clothing you’ve had in your closet that finally comes back into style.

    I like the closet space, but mostly I like the yard. I don’t know how they keep such nice grass under all those trees.

    Yay! I love almost everything about this house, but that weird bit of art by the dining room table — oh, my. It would be a “Say what now?” just about anywhere, but in a house that is otherwise so tasteful, it’s really quite jarring. The smaller art-within-the-art seems to have a human figure on it and the only think that makes any sense to me is that the piece is perhaps a memorial to a fallen soldier? I mean, that could be Army tan that is on that person. ?!

    @MsWildhack: Not sure what it’s about, but I’m betting it’s merely a part of the larger painting. A painting within a painting, so to speak. Despite the tan color, the thing that I first thought of, considering we can only see it from a distance, was the photo of Neil Armstrong on the lunar surface, and not just because we… only saw him from a distance. :)

    Oh, I think it’s significant in some way — I mean, it’s set apart by a frame which does seem to be 3 dimensional and it’s so different from the rest of the piece. But who it is and how that figure relates to the rest of it in the artist’s mind — who the heck knows? (Except, one would hope, the artist.)
