This lovely floral still life oil painting by the noted Hungarian contemporary artist, Emeric (1919 - ) is entitled simply "Fleurs" (Flowers). Signed by the artist and titled and dated on the rear of the canvas. (This is one of four Emeric works we have for sale. Please visit our GoAntiques gallery.) Canvas measures 23.5" by 31" and frame measures 25.4" by 33.5" and weighs approximately 5 lbs. Depicted is a large vase overflowing with red, yellow, white and blue flowers in full bloom. This work was purchased directly from the artist and imported to the U.S. a few years ago. Overall condition is very good, but there are a few places where paint has flaked from the canvas, including an area approximately 3/4" across in the upper right corner, and an area approximately 3/4" by 3" in the lower right corner near the signature.
