Who Painted This #28 - The Answer
|Still Life with Red Peppers on a White Lacquered Table|
- Title of the artwork: Still Life with Red Peppers on a White Lacquered Table
- Name of the artist who created this artwork: Félix Vallotton (1865-1925), Swiss painter and engraver
- Date it was created: 1915
- Media used: oil on canvas;
- Where it lives now: Kunstmuseum Solothurn (Switzerland)
It seems as if Vallotton didn't start painting still life until towards the end of his life - this one was painted 10 years before he died.
In my opinion he's a superb still life painter. Here's some links to more images of his still life paintings on Wikipaintings
- Un Grondin sur une serviette 1914
- Meat and eggs, 1918
- Flowers and Strawberries 1920
- Roses and nasturtiums, 1920
- Still Life with Roses, 1920
- Tulipes perroquet 1920
- Chrysanthemums and Autumn Foliage 1922
- Still Life with Large Earthenware Jug 1923

Thanks to all the regular "Who painted this?" followers for all the good wishes in relation to my eye surgery.
As of yesterday I now officially have better than average eyesight in relation to distance vision which is lovely and my pressures are now fine. Unfortunately I now have really awful vision for reading and it's not too good for computers - and my previous prescription glasses are now useless. However this will be fixed when I can finally get signed off at the end of June and can then go and get assessed for new glasses. Fortunately I found that my original driving glasses c. 1996 are just about OK for computers so long as I don't stay on too long! I KNEW there was a good reason to hang on to old glasses!
