|Description||This attractive British Still Life oil painting is by exhibited artist Edward Joseph Head. Painted circa 1920, it is a composition based around an old flugelhorn, with a vase, flowers and animal skull. There are several memento mori, an artistic or symbolic reminder of the inevitability of death. The matt flugelhorn above the skull, with its dust and dents of age contrasts with the gleaming but chipped vase, vibrant flowers and bright coloured cloths. A really lovely painting reminding one to make the most of now.|
