About this Item

South African 1886-1973
Still Life with Arums and Blossoms

signed

gouache on watercolour board

Notes

Most of the still lifes use arum lilies and they often fill the entire painted surface. The stately shapes of these flowers and the curved lines of their stems, as well as the imposing beauty of the calyxes, have all been judiciously harnessed to create the very lively and graceful character as a whole.

- Muller Ballot
