Description

Provenance: Leicester Galleries (Label Verso)

Dating from around 1935 Epstein painted a large number of flower paintings after he was asked to paint some flowers by a firm of Dutch art dealers. They are now in many collections including the Tate.

Epstein later wrote in his autobiography ‘Let There be Sculpture’, “I said I would paint twenty, in the end I painted sixty. Not content with this, I went on painting, giving up sculpture for the time being…… I lived and painted flowers”.
