Beautiful Original "Still Life" Painting on Copper, signed "Abraham Mignon Fecit" by the artist, size approx. 27 1/2" x 19 1/2" in. Comes with Certificate of Authenticity from the Museum d' Orsay, Paris, Stamped, / Abraham Mignon Fecit (21 June 1640 - 27 March 1679), was a Dutch golden age painter, specialized in flower bouquets. Mignon devoted himself almost exclusively to painting stilleben of flowers, fruit, birds and other still-life, though at times he also attempted portraiture. His flower pieces are marked by careful finish and delicate handling. His favourite scheme was to introduce red or white roses in the centre of the canvas and to set the whole group of flowers against a dark background. Nowhere can his work be seen to better advantage than at the Dresden Gallery, which contains fifteen of his paintings, twelve of which are signed. Six of his pictures are at the Louvre, four at the Hermitage, and other examples are to be found at the museums of Amsterdam, The Hague, Rotterdam, Brussels, Munich, Karlsruhe, Brunswick, Kassel, Schwerin, Copenhagen, Warsaw, Lyon, Florence and Turin.
