Harrie Kuyten (1883-1952) - Signed Oil, Still Life with Geraniums and Jug
DescriptionWe are proud to present a stunning still life by the highly sought after Dutch artist Harrie Kuyter. This interior still life is painted with bold, impasto brushwork typical of the Impressionist influence present in Kuyter's work, and features vibrant hues. The painting is excellently presented in a later dark wooden frame. Signed. On board.
In general the appearance is excellent. The varnish is clear and even, and the paint layer is stable and sound. There are some tiny retouching visible under UV light, mainly to the petals of the right hand flower and to the orange book. There are some minor spots of surface dirt typical for a painting of this age. There is an area with thin passages of paint above the flowers - this may be due to light surface abrasion, or it may be intentional by the artist. The frame is in good condition.
