About

Magnificent autumnal still life by Dutch artist Barbara van Houten, circa 1920.
A harvest of pumpkins and squashes surrounded in verdant greens.
This represents her largest and arguably most important painting. The work titled "Pompoenen artisjokken en zonnebloemen" measures 58.5 X 85" (136 X 203 cm).
It is large and has a mural like presence. The original chestnut frame is 2.5" wide on all sides. It is clearly signed on left center. Van Houten is known primarily for her still life paintings in oil, but she was also a master printmaker. Her work is prominently represented in Le Musee Mesdag In the Hague, Netherlands.
The present work is well listed and documented. It is illustrated and fully documented in the book "Barbara Van Houten" by G. Knuttel published in Amsterdam 1948.
