Attributed to Jaroslav Herbst (Czech Republic, 1887-1971), large oil on panel still life painting depicting a kettle filled with flowers, set on a table in front of a windowsill with flower pots. Unsigned. Likely original carved parcel gilt frame. Partial early 20th century gallery label en verso for Jaroslav Vosicky, Prague. Sight: 26 1/2" H x 27" W. Framed: 32" H x 33" W. Biography: Jaroslav Herbst initially studied engineering in Prague, but in about 1912 began devoting himself to painting as a self-taught artist. He was especially active in the 1930s. Herbst painted primarily landscapes and still lifes, as well as some allegorical scenes. His work shows the influence of Vincent van Gogh and expressionism, which substantially defined Czech art of the 1920s and 1930s. (Source: Askart). Condition: Overall very good condition. 1" errant mark or scratch lower right corner and some wear around perimeter of panel at frame edge.
