The bold water color and goauche floral still life Louis Albert Gayrin commands attention. The bold black strokes and vibrant color, even the subject, are reminiscent of Scandinavian textile designs made famous by Marimekko. This still life, on paper, is elegantly framed in a antiqued gold painted wood frame. The frame and painting are from the mid-century era dating from sometime between 1950s-1960s. Louis-Albert Gayrin is an American painter, born 1911, deceased 1971.
