For your consideration, a mid century floral still life watercolor, circa 1940’s-1960’s. The matted image measures 17 ¾” 13 ½” and is in its original linen matted non-glare glass 25” x 21” frame. The unsigned work is noteworthy for its elegant modernist composition and rich palette that includes strong diagonals and sophisticated color blending; seen in the reflections of environmental forms within the painting. The painting projects a uniquely transitional feeling, reflected in the integration of visual elements and treatment that are simultaneously Arts and Crafts derivative and more contemporarily figurative. The work, acquired in the San Louis Obispo California, is in excellent vintage condition with no foxing, creases, or repairs.
