Still life with Cologne jar, bread, and army knife by Jan Muijs (1925-2015).Material: Oil on canvas.Canvas size: 40 x 50 cmSize incl. frame: 50 x 60 cm.Well-packaged and insured shipping.Jan Muijs (1925-2015) was a painter from Brabant who had a special fascination for traditional Dutch still lifes. In his works light and composition are the main motive. They are compositions which have been built up as a coherent whole, with warm and cool colours used both next to each other and interchangeably. He mostly painted utensils and fruits. His paintings required a very labour-intensive way of working, because of the high degree of sophistication in capturing the objects. The still lifes are made with oils, so the lighting accentuates the details of the objects (source: http://www.artnieuws.com/#!kunstenaars/c228q).
