1952 Still Life, 'Almonds,' André Duffour

1952 oil on board by French artist, Jacques André Duffour (1926-2016). Freshly harvested almonds still in their lime green casings, some cracked open to reveal the bright nuts within. This post impressionist gem is richly painted, the oil thickly applied
creating a wealth of glorious texture.

About the Artist

Duffour kept a studio for many years at 162 Rue de Temple, Paris working as a painter and graphic artist - designing many posters for exhibitions at The Grand Palais des Champs-Élysées, Paris. He exhibited his post impressionist paintings regularly at the Salon des Indépendants during the 1950's and 60's.
