Still Life with Bread

French, early 20th century, oil on canvas still life painting signed J. Lafont.

The most exquisitely painted still life, with hugely post impressionistic influences.
Painted in the early 20th century, and very much in the style of the French post impressionists, especially the Van Gogh influenced, linear brush marks of colour.

I have drawn a blank with my searches for artists with this signature but can't help but think that they may even have sat alongside the greatest artists of the time.
For now, J. Lafont, Lafort , Lufant? must remain a mystery.

In good condition with age mellowed paint and stable, but cracked paint surfaces.

I trained in theatre design at University and have, for the past thirty years, been self employed as a mural and trompe l'oeil artist, as well as working alongside my husband Peter, of Arabesque Antiques, mostly in careful restoration, occasionally giving my opinion.

Perhaps, given my previous experience, it's natural that my new venture embraces art, and I am excited to be branching out into dealing in art and paintings.

I buy works I would like to own personally, where in my opinion the artist has shown skill with texture, colour and composition.

Hopefully others will love them too.
