Sale 2338 Lot 5
CHARLES ETHAN PORTER (1847 - 1923)
Oil on linen canvas, circa 1885-90. 254x508 mm; 10x20 inches. Signed in oil, lower right.
Provenance: private New York collection.
This romantic still life has an evocative, almost accidental arrangement of strewn blossoms or flowers. Characteristic of Porter's post-Paris period, the fluid, soft brushwork of the flower petals are typical of his late paintings.
Estimate $12,000 - 18,000
