Attrib. Gerald French (1927-2000) - 20th Century Oil, Preparing Vegetable Stock
DescriptionA charmingly rustic oil still life showing a pile of onions on a wooden kitchen bench with a measuring jug full of brown liquid and several other vessels. The painting has a tangible domesticity with muted colours and honest subject matter. The painting is unsigned but bears the label of the Trustees of Gerald French. This same label can be found on many other of French's works that are signed and currently available on the market. On board.
The condition is typical for a picture of this age including some discolouration. Some wear to the outer edges of the board.
