Footnotes

  • PROVENANCE:
    Private Collection, Glasgow. Apparently purchased at an exhibition at Alexander Reid and Son, Glasgow, in 1921
    With A F Armstrong, Glasgow, purchased 1971

    Hunter painted a series of similar 'landscape format' still lifes, with candlestick and pink rose. The vivid blue drape and door are also familiar features, and the deft light brushwork is classic Hunter.
