Drifters and Paddle Steamers


Felix Kelly
Drifters and Paddle Steamers, 1940s
49.5 x 76cm (image)

Kelly's paintings were influenced by the Surrealists, but his specialisation in domestic architecture saw him develop a romantic style that often included a number of recurring motifs such as red and white striped deckchairs, and items of mechanical engineering such as hot air balloons, paddle steamers, trains, and lighting fixtures. His paintings were meticulously executed: houses were painted to an architecturally accurate standard, but often contrasted with an untamed, almost sinister landscape that nodded to his Surrealist counterparts.
