A beautiful and serene still life that captured our hearts upon first sight.
Presented atop a mahogany wooden table is an arrangement of flowers in a vase, a sugar pot, and and 2 European vintage ceramic figurines of a boy and girl with animals around them.
What is so captivating about this work is that it has elements of both East and West – the artist has painted a dutch Delft blue and white chinoiserie porcelain vase that has some yellow overtones that further enhances its beauty.
The objects are set against a beautifully painted backdrop that picks up the colours of the flowers and the ornaments around it.
Very fine and soft brushstrokes have been used to create a smooth and delicate effect to the work, and there is great fluency from one subject to the next.
The artist has also skillfully captured the reflections of the objects cast against the wood grains of the table top.
Housed in its original frame, this is one of our larger artworks, and measures 88 x 69cm including the frame.
