About

A really beautiful oil on canvas by French painter Ernest Quost depicting two vases of flowers - a larger vase in the centre holds red, white and pink tulips with a smaller vase to its side holding small wildflowers and there's a flute to the other side. The piece is painted in a garden on a bright and sunny day. Signed lower right and signed & titled verso. Dimensions: Unframed: 23"x18" This piece is not currently framed but a suitable frame can be sourced if required. Provenance: Private French collection Ernest Quost probably studied under Horace Aumont during his time in Paris. He first exhibited at the Salon de Paris in 1866 and went on to exhibit at the Salon des Artistes Français, winning medals in 1880 and 1882. He became a member of the Salon in 1887 and was awarded a further medal in 1889 for the Exposition Universelle and medals in 1890 and 1900 for the out-of-competition section of the Exposition Universelle. He was made Chevalier of the Légion d'Honneur in 1883 and an Officer in 1903. He taught Montézin. Quost mainly painted Paris, portraying the bustle of the streets and the local dance parties. He would start with a number of sketches and then develop the work in his studio. Claude Monet admired his flower paintings and Van Gogh, in a letter to his brother Theo, alluded to 'Father Quost's roses'.
