Great attention has been paid to individual elements in the painting. Indeed each rose petal has been painted with diligent conscientious precision.
The artist has captured the beauty of the arrangement perfectly well, giving the whole composition significant depth. Indeed this still life is characterised by its exceptional pastel hues and by a remarkable concentration on light and shadow on fruit, lowers and foliage.
It is housed in its magnificent gilt gesso frame which is decorated with superb foliate decoration.
Add this splendid antique painting to a very special wall in your home.
