MARION MAXFIELD

(American, Born 1900)

PINK AND BLUE HYDRANGEAS

Oil on Canvas

40 x 30 Inches

Signed Lower Left

 

A large, midcentury Expressionist-style oil still-life of pink and blue hydrangeas in an earthenware pot. Painted with bravura brushwork in a harmonious palette of pastels and pure color. Signed lower left "M. Maxfield" for Marion Maxfield (American, 20th century), a listed artist, and painted circa 1960. Writing of Maxfield's 1970 retrospective, the Times art-critic Esther Bailes praised her "...great spontaneity and strong, sympathetic feeling for her subject."
