Description

The two oil on canvas paintings, created by Manuel de la Rosa (Spanish, 1860-1924) depict vibrant still life scenes. Similar colour palettes predominate on both paintings, but the subjects vary slightly. 

The first painting depicts a large bunch of carnations, twisted along a bamboo stick. The flowers are rendered in vibrant red, muted cream and pale pink. Flowers in full bloom as well as in their bud states are painted by Rosa as if to symbolise the different stages of their existance. 

In the second painting the artist focused on the depiction of roses in various colours and shades of oranges, reds and whites. A larger portion of the canvas is covered with flowers and foliage. Tall and flowing plants intertwine with the roses which occupy the lower portion of the canvas. The inclusion of climbing plants almost mirrors the composition of the first painting where the bamboo stick is used to heighten the flower bunch. 

The two paintings are signed 'Manuel de la Rosa/Sevilla', the first one to the bottom left and the second one to the lower right. Both are framed in beautiful carved giltwood frames. 

These Manuel de la Rosa's paintings can adorn the wall as a pair, but would also make a stunning composition with another floral still life painting by the same artist available here
