Adelle bought herself this Bernard Buffet still life print for her birthday way back in November last year. It’s entitled Nature morte a la citrouille or Still Life with Pumpkin and was originally painted in 1955. This print was made in the 1970s.
We’ve blogged about Bernard Buffet before, he’s one of our favourite artists.
We finally got it framed – a great job done by the friendly folks at Abacus. It’s found the perfect home above the wrought iron bed in our guest bedroom.
Great records and great covers – a perfect combination.
He’s a fabulous artist – so distinctive – and one of our real favourites. Here’s a link to the online Musée Bernard Buffet…
…and here’s a 2-minute, black & white film from 1962 of Buffet and his wife, Annabel in their château and private chapel. We discovered on the British Pathé website – there’s so much beautiful art on the walls!
We’ve set up a Buffet Flickr group – please add your images if you have some or just have a browse!
We do love a crisp, sunny, winter dog walk. This picture, a 1960s Athena original print on board, really captures the scene & atmosphere.
It’s on its way to our Picture House Antiques pitch – one of those items that’s hard to part with, but we’ve had the pleasure of living with it for a long time. Having said that, it might never make it – it’s stalled near the front door as we give it admiring glances all over again.
It’s by artist Edward Ripley and is entitled Winter Morning. We’d really like to view the original oil – anyone of you out there own it?!!
You can sense that there’s real texture to the paint, particularly in the snowy fields.
The image is so strong though that it still makes a fabulous print!
