David Paton, Still Life With Flowers And Parrot

Regular price £1,095.00

DESCRIPTION

An impressive still life depicting a beautiful arrangement of vivid flowers bursting from an urn. In the bottom left, a brightly coloured parrot is making a dramatic entrance.

With its strong column of colour and bustling composition, the painting is reminiscent of still lifes created on the continent during the 18th-century.

The artist, David Paton (act.1923-1930), created many still lifes in this classical style and several of them are held in the National Trust’s collection at Nuffield Place, Henley-on-Thames. Nuffield is the former home of William Morris, maker of the Morris Motor Car, and it seems plausible that Lord Morris commissioned Paton directly.

The painting is signed and dated in the lower right and housed within a decorative black and gold carved frame. A similar work appeared at Bonhams in 2004.
