Original Oil Painting Still Life France French Poppies

A large original oil painting of poppies in the impressionist style from the early 1900’s. The frame is a little misleading in that it appears to be 1950’s. One of our knowledgable customers, experienced in this area, pointed out that the cream painted inner slip is probably early 20th century while the outer frame has been replaced. So easy when you know how!

Painted in Belgium, Holland or Northern France the next step is to try and decipher that signature. We have included a black and white shot if anyone has a clue.

Item Measurements. 117 cm wide x 92 cm high and the current framing is about 9 cm deep
