Native Wild English Cowslips on Board; Norah Crisp(b.1884)

Product ID: A177

This is an original oil on board of a really wild old English flower, the cowslip. Traditionally cowslips were picked for May Day celebrations or harvested to make wine and herbal medicines. However, the numbers of these most English of country flowers have declined dramatically since the 1940s. Once seen in great cowslip meadows across Norfolk, this picture by Norah Crisp a Suffolk/Aldeburgh artist captures their nodding flowers and wrinkled rosettes of fresh green leaves in a wonderfully naturalistic presentation.

Painted in oils, linen on board, the painting measures a generous 40.5cm x 40.5cm approximately. It is in excellent vintage condition.

Signed by the artist, Norah Crisp (born 1884), bottom right. 

A perfect painting for a classic country/cottage inspired interior, gardener or lover of all things floral.

A lovely picture capturing this most English of rare wildflowers.
