Artist: Jon MOLVIG
Birth/Death: 1923–1973

Title: Hotel lounge

Credit Line: Stuartholme-Behan Collection, University of Queensland

Jon Molvig's Hotel lounge 1957 is an unsettling place, the colours lurching unsteadily between contrasts and complements. Molvig's ungainly figures have been created with violent sweeps of the brush, giving a feeling of drunkenness to the painting.
