Still life with bouquet of flowers and jug, vividly colored and with quick brush strokes painted by the Russian artist Constantin Terechkovitch, whose oeuvre is strongly characterized by the French postimpressionism.
The painting is overall in very good condition; slightly consistent with age. The canvas shows slight rippling lower left, resp. there is a slight convex bump. The frame bears traces of age and wear as well as minimal losses of color and material and scattered old wormholes.
