Signed on the front.

This floral still life is more a Art Deco style than a 17th century Dutch style.
During the Deco period ‘true 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 as seriously anymore by the art market today 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 manner. I believe I succeeded with this one. Definitely one of the my favorites.

All art by Jos Kivits

A portrait of an room or office with the books, paper, watch and Delft lidded Tobacco pot, and old long pipe. An allegory of study and contemplation.Just a few objects found in the house of a deceased uncle who was reading the paper while having his last smoke from the Ming tobacco pot (which lid is invisible behind the box.  The box with some small personal trinkets, a small checkered  pill box,  and an empty red glass flower vase, as he was a widower and did not like to see dying flowers in his house anymore. The feeling of holding something in your hands that is hundred of years old, like the pewter and the ceramic Japanese vase, gives me a feeling of agelessness. It vibrates through my entire body and to spend weeks painting something like this climaxes to an explosion in my imagination.
