A classic example of the work of noted artist RAOUL MAUCHERAT DeLONGPRE (1843-1911), featuring white lilacs of spring, artistically placed in a void space. The artist specialized in these hyper realistic works featuring lilacs, and, sometimes, roses mixed in. He specialized in floral still life works. There is considerable confusion among scholars and collectors as to the family of DeLongpre artists, which were "fleuristes" (flower painters) in Lyons, a center for such activity. It seems that Paul DeLongpre (1855-1911), moved to New York from Paris, in 1890, and achieved considerable recognition and fame in the 1890's for his floral paintings. By 1898 he had moved westward to Los Angeles, which welcomed him. In what is now central Hollywood, he lived on a sumptuous three acre estate complete with luscious gardens. Paul's works were eagerly sought after and many prints were distributed. Raoul is thought to be a brother or even uncle of Paul. Their styles are virtually indistinguishable, leading to the confusion among art historians and collectors; it is uncertain if he traveled to America. This painting measures 27" by 19" inside the mat and 35 1/2" by 27" framed. Generally clean, there are a few minor flaws (see the small water drips near the signature area). Allow for reflections in glass.
