Poppies and Hydrangeas Print by Max Streckenbach Vintage Oversize.
This wonderful vintage poppy print is by the artist Max Theodore Streckenbach (1863 - 1936) . It's a superb study of gorgeous Oriental poppies, with white snowball hydrangea viburnum blooms. 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, and the showy hydrangea was known for Boastiness...! Please excuse any glass glare at the left and right areas in the photo, the print is even toned throughout, and is magnificent. This print is a perfect focal point for any poppy grouping. It is signed lower right Max Streckenbach. These extra large old poppy prints are becoming increasingly hard to find.
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 very large. Overall size with the composite gold frame is aprox 21 x 25 inches, again with minimal wear. The corners have raised design embellishments. Postage is an estimate, and any overages are always cheerfully refunded.
