20th-century French School oil on wood panel. Still life signed Maurice Ferdinand Perrot (1892-1974). On the back is the address of the painter's former studio at 130 Boulevard Brune in the 14th arrondissement of Paris. The work has texture to the touch.
A complex composition with a strong chiaroscuro imprint. The realism of the shadows and reflections add to the Impressionist approach and offer a captivating and graphic result where the surplus of material seems to sublimate the subject.
