White Rose [Charles Hurlimann]

DESCRIPTION

A continental portrait of a seated female that wears a single white rose - an ancient symbol of peace, respect and hope.

It seems significant that the painting dates to 1918, the year that WWI finally ended. Perhaps she’s carrying the rose to signify her optimism for a peaceful time ahead.

The artist, Charles Hurlimann, was a French painter and illustrator that is best known for illustrating specialist literature. His name appears in the newspaper, Pele-Mêle, in 1913.

Signed and dated.

Framing

If the images display the artwork framed, then the frame is included in the price. For those that are unframed, we can handle the framing for you should you wish. We always try to source frames that are appropriate for the age of the painting but can also provide contemporary alternatives if you prefer. You only pay for the cost of the actual frame (usually £30 - £50) as we include the labour for free.
