Title

Silver-eye and vine


Artist

Carl Plate

Australia

19 Dec 1909 - 15 May 1977


About

Plate's early work displays elements of the poetic, romantic impulses of the School of Paris, with its emphasis on expressive figuration and gentle abstraction. The frame of this work is original, and reflects the contemporary French taste for luxurious presentation of avant garde work, even on a domestic scale.
