Now, this floral still life is more a Art Deco style than a 17th century Dutch style. During the Deco period ‘realism’ was not very much appreciated. There were a number of academies that were still teaching the ‘fine’ arts, but they were far and few between. When I was doing my academy entrance exams, it was all post impressionism. Bernard Buffet and Utrillo were the leading artist of that day, but not taken seriously anymore by the art market due to the amount of prints that spoiled their future (One of the reasons I am not a fan of prints). This is an original work, not a copy of some else. A similar composition of flowers I had done 25 or more years ago (although differently and in a smaller size) I was drawn back to do it again in a more impressive size. I believe I succeeded with this one. Definitely one of the my favorites. I believe it belongs in a serious collection, and an astute collector would seize the opportunity. If not now, then in time to come.
