This vibrant 19th-century still life depicts a tangled array of flowering bindweed. It’s a colourful bounty of vivid new life. Through a mass of foliage and shades of green, the flowers spring forth and grow. They emerge through the leaves with a sense of youthful exuberance as if placed in the sun for the very first time.
The artist is unknown but they were evidently a keen student of nature.
