|Description||This wonderful British Post Impressionist floral oil painting is by noted female artist Margaret Fisher Prout. Painted circa 1930 and oil on board, Summer Flowers is a riot of colour, patterns and the texture of impasto. Red, yellow and white dahlias and roses amongst other flowers are arranged in a decorated jug on a table. A really joyful painting and an excellent example of Prout's work.
