Lafarge, John - Flowers on a Window Ledge Still Life

Fine Art Prints of Distinction


A Museum Quality Print of Flowers on a Window Ledge by John Lafarge for sale by Brandywine General Store. The American artist finished this oil on canvas in 1861, the same year as his marriage to Margaret Mason Perry. This charming still life, created just two years after John La Farge took up painting, is primarily a study of color and light. La Farge beautifully renders the effects of sunlight on the white curtain by blending an innovative mix of colors—peach, creamy white, and a light, green-tinged gray—to capture the subtleties of shadow, contour, and light on the fabric. Brushwork, not color or line, distinguishes the curtain from the window ledge and background sky, anticipating modernist art styles such as post-impressionism.
