FOLLOWER OF JAN FYT
STILL LIFE OF FLOWERS IN A SILVER VASE
oil on canvas
canvas: 30 by 25 in.; 76.2 by 63.5 cm.
framed: 37 by 32¼ in.; 94 by 81.9 cm.
The canvas is lined. A decorative image reads well, though there is some minor thinning to the leaves far left. Inspection under UV reveals a thick varnish with a just a few spots of retouches perhaps scattered in the white flowers and yellow robe. Two vertical lines of inpainting at left that have slightly discolored are visible to the naked eye, but not too distracting. Painting can hang as is. Offered framed.
