JEANNE ILLENYE Classical Still Life with Ewer fruit flowers roses velvet cloth peaches apple blossoms raspberries gadroon table

capturing nature's transient beauty 
"Still Life with Ewer"
20x16 inches / oil on canvas
 
A classical oil painting of fruit and flowers arranged around an antique brass wine or water ewer with curvaceous detailing and handle.  Blushing pink and white English roses primulas, grapes, peach, plum and narcissi rest softly upon a dark green velvet cloth trimmed in gold fringe on a gadrooned table ledge.  The stage is set with the backdrop featuring a worn Oriental rug and a branch of apple blossoms with red raspberries for a cohesive and classical pyramidal composition.
