Pale Pink Roses in a Chinese Vase

Pink roses, perhaps Belle of Portugal, in a large green-grey vase, oil on canvas, 24” x 20”, signed lower left ‘A. Muller-Ury 1941’. This is still in the heavy carved and gilt nineteenth century copy of an eighteenth-century frame in which it was first placed in 1941.

Private Collection, Switzerland, on loan to the Muller-Ury Stiftung, Hospental, Switzerland.

Jessica Dragonette; her husband Nicholas Turner to 2010; his second wife; acquired by Viktor Blaser in late 2012; private collection.

Beautifully conserved for the late Viktor Blaser.
