Breakfast Still Life
An expressive and richly textured still life composition, executed in oil in 1952.
The artwork presents a coffee boiler, a pitcher and 3 fruits placed atop a brown table, set against a blue and brown background.
A range of vibrant colours including orange, brown and blue have been used, invigorating the work with liveliness.
This textured painting is filled with areas of impasto, where the paint has been applied thickly such that it stands proud from the surface, evoking tactility and a wonderful energetic feel to the painting.
This oil on board is housed in a deep profiled gilt frame. There are some areas of minor craquelure (fine cracks in the paint) commensurate with its age. Craquelure is not in itself harmful to the painting, and can add to the ‘quality’ of patina that only age can bring.
Size: 43 x 53 cm (including frame)
