John Ivor Stewart PPPS (1936-2018) - Contemporary Pastel, Opium Poppies
A striking pastel study showing vibrant pink and orange poppies by the prolific British artist, John Ivor Stewart.
Embracing the pastel medium, Stewart creates softened yet vivid impressions of his floral forms. Combining an impressionistic approach to colour with a highly layered composition, Stewart's unique style challenges fine art convention. Championing an often overlooked medium, the work is surprisingly contemporary in character. This particular artwork clearly displays his distinctive artistic vision.
Well presented in a double card mount and modern gilt effect wooden frame. With the artist's own label to the reverse.Signed and incsribed on the reverse. On wove.
In very good condition overall, for a picture of this age. There are some minor marks to the edges of the frame, and scuffing to the corners.
