Still-life /Fruit and flower still life / Original painting / Grapes and pears / Gladiolus / Oil still life / One of a kind / ready to be sent The painting "Flowers and Fruits" Victoria Kostenko painted in 1988. Materials: canvas, oil paint Dimensions: 71 cm x 58 cm (27.95 "x 22.83") The painting was signed by the artist in the lower right corner and on the back. The picture is written in the genre of still life. The artist depicted gladioli in an old metal vase next to grapes and pears lying on the table and on a large ceramic plate. The artist masterfully conveyed light and shadow, paying attention to each fold on the canvas. On the table is a plate and a vase with a flower. All the attention of the person looking at the picture is focused on bright red gladioli, which stand out in bright spots against the background. The picture conveys the feeling of autumn when they are harvesting, and the approach of cold weather is already felt in the air.  The picture is filled with a palette of life itself, and one involuntarily wants to reach out to try a grape berry or eat a juicy pear.
