Still Life With Daffodils & Apples

This mid-20th-century still life by Danish artist Robert Panitzsch (1879-1949) depicts a vase of daffodils together with a bowl of apples on a table.

Exquisitely rendered to capture the subtle effects of light, each element displays its true characteristics. Within a seemingly simple composition, Panitzsch has tackled the complexity of several surfaces. The glass bowl, with its semi-transparent interior, perfectly rounded and near opaque in the shade. The ceramic vase, partially reflecting the colour of the bowl, and tapering towards the top. While the crisp apples, in green and red hues, are described with various undulations.

Panitzsch is predominantly known for his captivating scenes depicting quiet interiors with figures. But occasionally, he’d also produce still lifes, usually from within his own home. Here, in 1949, the final year of his life, he’s painted a decorative ensemble with the utmost proficiency.

Conservation & History

We care profoundly about our role as custodians and every piece in the collection has been assessed by our conservator. When required, we undertake professional restoration carefully using reversible techniques and adopt a light touch to retain the aged charm of each work. We also restore frames rather than replace them as many are original and selected by the artists themselves.
