Irène Bataille

Still Life With Poppies & Daisies

This mid-20th-century oil painting by Belgian artist Irène Bataille (1913-2012) depicts a vibrant arrangement of flowers, including poppies and daisies, and a brown stoneware jug. It’s a typically expressive composition, which is reminiscent of the post-impressionists.

Irène Bataille was predominantly known for landscapes, still lifes, harbour scenes and village views. Her spirited oeuvre is bustling with vibrant colours and rhythm. She trained at the Academie Berchem and the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp. The Musée des Beaux-Arts de Tournai holds examples of her work.

Effervescent blooms rendered with an adventurous palette.

Signed in the lower left and held in a gold frame with floral relief.
