A beautifully balanced still life, with the snuffed candle serving as a memento mori, a symbol of mortality. To achieve the naturally aged, antiqued look of this painting, the oil paint was applied to a cracked canvas. The custom-built frame, which was crafted and waxed by hand, adds to the rich patina of this work.
It’s true that you can’t buy a new old-master painting. But Trevor James makes it possible to buy a new artwork beautifully and impeccably painted by artists in the old-master style. The frames, like the oil paintings, are crafted by hand with an emphasis on Old World magnificence.
