Claudius Dubiez, Still Life With Wisteria

Claudius Dubiez, Still Life With Wisteria

This enchanting still life by French artist Claudius Dubiez (act.1854-1902) depicts an arrangement of wisteria with a vase, jug and book. It’s exquisitely rendered with careful attention to the finer details. Note the light, which falls across the petals and illuminates the gilding on the book. And the gentle folds in the cloth, which rise and fall away.

Dubiez admired this decorative ensemble and captured its elegant beauty with a delicate touch.
