Elegantly Delicate 1920s/1930s Floral Oil in muted blue greens

Product ID: A107


This lovely floral still life depicts an informal arrangement of country garden flowers; including daisies, roses and anemones, in the softest and most muted of deliciously delicate blue grey/green colours in a glass vase. Remarkably expressive and sensitive this painting has a deeply appealing and timeless elegance that is as attractive today as when it was painted nearly a century ago .Almost certainly dating to the early 20th century (circa 1920s/1930s) , it's pair still has the paper exhibition label of the artist attached to the back, together with the original sale price in guineas.  Guineas (£1-1s-0d, one pound, one shilling) were considered a more gentlemanly amount than pounds. One paid a tradesman, such as a carpenter, in pounds but a gentleman, such as an artist, in guineas. By an artist, E. Stonestreet, from the garden of England, this painting came rather aptly from the from the estate of a prominent local house. 

This fabulous floral study is exquisitely executed; ingeniously invoking the simple, pure appeal of these modest garden blooms. The subtle subdued tones of the painting lend it a deep air of calm and gentleness that is very appealing. Endlessly versatile this lovely painting would be at home in a multitude of places within the home from a cosy sitting room to a formal drawing room or bedroom. Casually displayed it would add an air of unconsidered charm, whilst framed it might assume more significance and weight.  Contrast it with a punchy modern setting, or add a note of enduring and timeless charm to an English or French/Scandinavian inspired country house or cottage.

Size & Condition:

Painted in oils on board, this lovely painting measures approximately 20" by 15" . It was almost certainly framed at some time, judging by the remnants of the backing paper attached to the back but nonetheless (or perhaps because of this) it is in excellent vintage condition for its age. 

A lovely, vintage floral oil painting in a very appealing colour palette.
