Louis Albert Gayrin Fruit Still Life Painting in Black Yellow Green Orange Gouache

Out of stock


Captivating still life painting in gouache, on paper, housed in an elaborate gold frame. The painting is estimated to be from the early to mid 20th century. Still life has always been a representation of life itself. The objects chosen often reflect the current sentiment of the artist or the world at large. Here Gayrin choses to capture vibrant fruit. The lush orange and yellow hues, plump forms, emerging from darkness… one could infer a sense of abundance. Perhaps the artist was flourishing at this time of his life. Old Dutch masters worked in a similar fashion. Fruit and and flowers proudly displayed the wealth of the Dutch bourgeoisie. Gayrin attempts a similar effect, but in a much more approachable way. His loose brush strokes, bold contrast, put a 20th century American twist on an old classic. Louis-Albert Gayrin is an American painter, born 1911, deceased 1971. The gold frame appears to be original to the painting with the frame shop’s tag on the back “Abbey Picture Frame Gallery,” Los Angeles. The painting is covered by a pane of acrylic. We also have a another large blue floral still life by Gayrin.
