A monumental still life painting of chrysanthemums in an ornate gilt timber frame. The oil on canvas was painted in 1898 by Belgian artist Paul Leduc (1876-1943) and retains its original carved gilt timber frame which is as impressive as the picture itself. Paul Leduc was a Belgian landscape architect who trained at the academy of Mons under the direction of Bourlard. Leduc was known for his landscape imagery typically of his native homeland along with Italy and southern France. He painted in the neo impressionist taste and worked heavily to try and represent light adequately. This picture by Leduc is a beautiful example of his late 19th century works and would have likely once resided in a grand home.
