Oil on Canvas, Still Life by Jorge Soteras (1917 1990)
There are few works by this artist available. Very much from the French school of painting, Soteras painted this work in Paris in 1957. It's signed and dated and on the reverse the artist has included his address. The scene is a tableau of a kitchen table depicting a bowl, grapes, a plate with an apple, a set of keys and some chillies drying. Stylistically it's very appealing with it's almost two dimensional perspective.
