Still-Life with Zinnias, Delphiniums and Other Flowers
American, 20th Century
Oil on canvas, signed
20.25 x 16 in.
This signed oil painting on canvas of Zinnias, Delphiniums, and other Flowers in an Earthen Jar was painted by the American artist Arnold Rhodes. Here, Rhodes beautifully captured the delicate balance of Impressionisms influence in palette and brushstroke while retaining the traditional sense of Realism obtained by classical training. He has created an intimate still-life which draws the viewers eye through the use of vibrant color and rendered clarity.
