Stunning large heavy vintage oil painting of a delightful floral display with a statue on a table.  This distinctive painting is quite unusual.  The canvas is quite thick and textured and upon it, the tulips are carved out with splashes of colour and vibrant brushstrokes.  The statue has blushed flesh hues and is highlighted with verdigris and the darker hues of green.  Both the vase and statue are sat on a table that is draped by a table cloth with a frill edge.  It's all very enchanting...
