A fantastic still life oil painted in the impressionist style. Here the artist has rendered rich and intense colours, seeking oppositions of blue with orange, red and green, yellow and violet. Also evident is the artist’s use of the impressionist skill of the spontaneous brushstroke, each brush mark visible and distinct. Contrasting colours combined with multi directional strokes convey a sense of light and movement. There is a certain warmth and homeliness to this painting.
The painting is housed in a robust frame, and is in good vintage condition. There are some areas of craquelure (fine cracks in the paint) as seen in the photos, but the paint layer is stable overall. Cracks forming within the paint layer is natural as the paint starts to age. Craquelure is not in itself harmful to the painting, and can add to the ‘quality’ of patina that only age can bring.
