This wonderful poppy print is by the artist Max Theodore Streckenbach (1863 - 1936) . It's a superb study of richly-hued Oriental poppies, both in full bloom and rounded bud heads. There are also tall blooms of lavender-blue delphiniums. Streckenbach was a master at portraying the poppy and other Summer flowers, and this one is outstanding in every way. The Language of Flowers says that the scarlet poppy symbolizes "Fantastic Extravagance", as it surely does! The delphinium bespoke "Big Heartedness".
The print is in near FINE condition with no fading or blemishes. Truly, this is one of the most beautiful pieces by Streckenbach we've ever had, and it is LARGE. Overall size with the composite gold frame is aprox 21 x 24 inches, again with minimal wear. This print is a perfect focal point for any poppy grouping. It is signed lower right "Max Streckenbach". These old poppy prints are becoming increasingly hard to find! There is a matching companion print of poppies and snowballs also in our shop! (And yes, we could ship them together in one box.)
