BRIGHT BLOOMING PRIMULAS – JOHANNES VAN DER KROOIJ
A strong and vividly painted still life of brightly blooming primulas. The soft overflowing brush strokes of the artist give this work a unique tranquil yet strong look. The primulas seem to be caught in the very peak of their bloom, which gives this work a confident but also a very summer like vibe.
