Chrysanthemums by Froidure

chrysanthemums by faux froidure, 20c
A still life of chrysanthemums by E. Faux Froidure, watercolor on paper. Dated 1902 and signed by the artist, it is a souvenir from passers by. Still life painting is the only form that I have a hard time to reconcile with. Not that I despise the work, but drawing still objects as if taking pictures of them is something beyond me. Show me the most abstract painting, I am comfortable, but figs or apples on a plate, no.

Dimensions: 95x120 cm.
Estimated value: $12,000
