Estimated Price: £2,000 - £3,000

Description: AR Epstein (Sir Jacob, 1880-1959). Peonies and Roses, circa 1936, watercolour and gouache on paper, signed 'Epstein' in black to lower left, 44 x 57cm (17.25 x 22.5ins), framed and glazed. This flower painting is one of around three hundred painted by Epstein in later life. The artist was commissioned by the Dutch old master dealers Ascher & Velber in 1933 to produce a series of flower paintings of the present type. Painting flowers became an obssession with boxes of fresh flowers arriving weekly from Holland. The outbreak of the Second World War saw an end to the weekly air-freight deliveries and Epstein returned to his sculptural work. See David Messum, Epstein; The Flower Paintings, exhibition catalogue, 1992. Provenance: Private Collection, London. (1)
