This lovely reproduction of a 19th c. floral still life reveals the clarity of color and strength of technique achieved by the artist. With the use of Impasto in development of the background and sculpting the petals, the artist has conveyed an expression of strength and speed with his brushstrokes. The surface has a depth and texture created by his application of pigment.
