About the Item

Large still life oil painting by French artist, Constantin Font signed in the lower left. This very attractive oil on canvas hails from the 1930's. A composition that is perfection, flowers crammed and arranged not too neatly in an attractive vase, probably freshly picked from the garden. An aqua green throw sits on the right hand side, balanced by a porcelain bird of the same colour on the left. The flowers come in all sorts of pink, reds, whites and purple hues animated by the artist with raised petals on a slightly textured canvas.

  • Antique French Impressionist Landscape/riverscape by Ernest Gaston Marche
    Located in AIGNAN, FR
    Antique French impressionist riverscape/landscape oil painting on wood board in a gilt frame, unsigned (see below). This is a typical and charming late 19th Century French impressionist oil painting of a woman reading on the bank of a river. This lively landscape interpretation has been deftly applied on a canvas board by the artist using a small couteau and brushes. Some areas of elevation created with impasto thickened oils and dashes of paint give this painting animation. The light travels in from the bottom right to contrast with the dark hues of the thick riverbank vegetation.

  • Untitled Still Life with Reclining Nude recto
    By Roger Marcel Limouse
    Located in Berlin, MD
    Roger Marcel Limouse, (Algerian/French 1894 - 1989) Still Life, October 1939, Oil on canvas. Signed upper right and marked Oct 39 on back. Greens, Blues, and Yellow/Browns prevail in this still life of a table with fruits, cake, and a candle. Nude is painted verso on stretched canvas under frame. Frame 24.5 x 28.875 x 1.625, Canvas 21.875 x 23.875 A student of Paul Albert Laurens (1870-1934) at the Académie Julian, his figurative work, very colorful, with powerful and stripped down forms, made him one of the last representatives of Fauvism and the eldest of the group of Painters of Poetic Reality. He belongs to the School of Paris. In 1943, Jacques de Laprade dedicated a book to Roger Limouse in the collection "The Masters of Tomorrow" directed by Francis Carco. He writes, "One of the characteristics of this personality is strength. There is nothing in Limouse that lacks relief. This small and extremely vigorous man seduces by his direct and dru language, by his deep conviction, by the picturesque of his stories, by his very life which testifies to his energy. In 1948, Roger Limouse was appointed professor at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris (Professor at the School of Fine Arts). He held this position until 1964. In 1949, the journalist Gisèle d'Assailly (1904-1969) devoted a book "With the Painters of Poetic Reality" to eight friendly painters, supporters of a colorful and intimate figurative painting of French inspiration, Maurice Brianchon, Christian Caillard...
