Midcentury Painting Still Life Of Summer Flowers By Pauline Boumphrey

£250    $318    €296
Shipping: UK £35
By the American artist Pauline Bomphrey
 
 
This midcentury impressionistic oil painting captures a vibrant still life of flowers, showcasing the elegance and charm of purple Delphiniums, white Carnations, and purple Chrysanthemums. The artist's brushstrokes are bold and expressive, imbuing the scene with a dynamic energy and a sense of movement. The Delphiniums rise tall and regal, their purple hues creating a striking contrast against the softer, rounded forms of the Carnations and the intricate, layered petals of the Chrysanthemums. The rich colours and textured layers reflect the light in a way that brings the bouquet to life, evoking the freshness of a garden in full bloom. The background is a blur of soft tones, allowing the flowers to stand out as the focal point of the composition. This painting is a beautiful testament to the artist's skill in capturing the fleeting beauty of nature with an impressionistic touch.
