Early 20thC Oil on Board; Pink Poppies
Exuberant French oil on board depicting full pink poppies and flowering iris in a white ceramic vase.
Reminiscent of Samuel Peploe who is primarily remembered for his sustained experimentation in the genre of still life, the depiction of artfully arranged fruit, bottles, ceramics and flowers.
This luscious early 20thC impasto handling is typical of the period, comprising a sparse composition set against a dark background with vibrant abstraction.
