Fabulous 1930s E.Byatt Scabious & Cosmos Still Life

Product ID: A183

A gorgeously appealing large-scale still life of lilac blue scabious, casually displayed in a pot bellied earthenware container. This still life, 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 typically Byatt-esque pieces displayed upon a table. The picture is exquisitely observed. A rustic container with patterned band is beautifully rendered, capturing the light from a nearby window perhaps. In the foreground a small green blue bowl echoes the soft lilac blue colour of the scabious, which is made more intense by the subdued tones of the background. To the other side stands a pretty small figurine, typical of Byatt, "admiring" the blooms.

Size & Condition:

This lovely large vintage print dating from around the1930s measures approximately 27" by 23" in its original frame. The back has the partial remant of the original framers label.The frame is in good condition for its age, with just a small area in a couple of places where the little of the paint/gesso has come away. 

An extremely lovely and 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 flower lover.
