Grapevines, White and Grapevines, Red, William Hughes

Two panels of a diptych, oil and gold paint on canvas, each roughly 40 x 17 inches (100 x 44 cm). The source for the images is an auction house, so I assume these are now in a privete collection.

Of the two panels, that of the white grapes fares better in reproduction, revealing the artist’s nicely painterly approach and his use of texture, both in the plant forms and the background.
