Vintage from the 1960s


Vintage original oil painting, please read Item Details


Height: 30 Inches; Width: 24 Inches

On sale! Beautiful vintage oil painting from the late 1960s is a still life of a brass vase filled with dried flowers, in an earthy palette of browns, oranges, and reds. The painting was done with a palette knife and has bold, expressive strokes and areas of thick paint. It's painted on canvas stretched on wood and comes without a frame.

The artist, Helen D. Hume (my mother), painted this still life in about 1969, while studying in Het Vrij Atelier, Antwerp, Belgium (the vase pictured is an antique Flemish brass). She is an award-winning plein air oil painter, printmaker, and photographer, who has been in numerous juried and solo exhibitions. She has degrees from Webster University and is the author of nine books for artists and art educators.

The painting is in good condition, but has some light crackling on the surface in a few spots. Please zoom in on photos for details.

Size: 24 x 30 inches (61 x 76.2 cm)
