Niccolo d'Ardia Caracciolo R.H.A (1941 – 1989). Oil of Daffodils in a Blue and White Vase. Mid-late 20th century. Similar oil still life sold at Adam's realised €3,400.00.
A wonderful still life of daffodils in a flower pot, reminiscent of the Dutch School of painting. The slightly wilting bouquet and the dry blossoms on the table evoke the themes of the fleeting nature of life in Dutch ‘vanitas’ paintings, a poignant reminder that life and beauty are fleeting.
