Magnificent E. Byatt Roses Print

Product ID: A116

A gorgeously appealing large-scale still life of blowsy red roses, casually displayed in a pot bellied earthenware container. The picture, by E. Byatt, is redolent of blooms picked in the early morning, with the dew or rain still damp upon them, having been submerged in a pot to hand in the boot room, before being set amongst an arrangement of favourite pieces displayed upon a table. The picture is exquisitely observed; with  the detail of water droplets gathered on the petals and dripping from the leaves forming lttle puddles on the table amongst the petals shed by the fulsome roses. A patterned band  on the rustic brown container is beautifully textured, almost inviting one to run one's finger tips over it. In the foreground the pattern on a small bowl echoes the full bodied red colour of the roses, which is made more intense by the subdued tones of the background.

Size & Condition:

This lovely large vintage print dating from 1940s and signed by the artist, measures approximately 22.5" by 18" in its original frame, which is back stamped with the name of the original framer.The frame is in good condition for its age, with just a small area to the front and side where a little of the paint has come away. 

An extremely lovely, timelessly beautiful picture, for the sitting room or bedroom (apparently the Queen Mother had a Byatt in her bedroom), which hung for well over half a century in the home of a sprightly nonagenarian rose lover.
