Flamingo decorative artwork - vintage Vernon Ward statement framed prints - set of 2 - 1960s
Pair vintage decorative framed flamingo prints by British artist Vernon Wells. Raised framed center images of flamingo pairs with water lilies, rhododendrons and iris. Painted duck egg blue border and and outside antiqued gold frame to match the inner one.
Printed stamp on the back of the painting indicates these were produced by an art rental company. Hmm...rent a flamingo?
The duck egg border is not original, it was repainted. How do I know that? I did it. Because it seemed wrong to have flamingoes and not have any aqua involved.
SIZE each print measures 17" wide by 37" tall
CONDITION Very good. The prints are aged evenly and have a slightly yellow cast. The gold double borders have an antiqued patina, with red underneath showing in some places. There is a dent in the outside frame of the print with the rhododendron, about 13" down from the top. The paper dust backing is missing.
