This vintage floral wall art, taken from Metropolitan’s 1990 engagement book, features a print of Edward Kauffer’s “Sunflowers”. Originally painted in oils in 1921, Kauffer’s otherwise traditional still life is transformed into a dynamic piece of vintage floral art by his Cubist influence. Geometric blocks and shapes compose the central sunflowers, set in saturated yellows, reds, and greens against a soft gray background streaked with shadow.

The vintage floral print is housed in a copper colored vintage metal frame which measures 18 inches by 16 inches. Both the frame and art are in excellent condition, ready to hang. Bring sunshine into your home with Kauffer’s “Sunflowers”, a piece of vintage floral wall art that builds the universal motif of flowers from new and interesting shapes.

More about Edward Kauffer, from the Professional Association for Design: 

Edward (“Ted”) McKnight Kauffer was one of Europe's most prolific and influential advertising poster artists during the twenties and thirties, and as innovative as his more celebrated French counterpart, A.M. Cassandre. In England, where he lived and worked, Kauffer was hailed for elevating advertising to high art, yet in America only the design cognoscenti knew of his achievements when the Montana-born expatriate returned to New York City from London in 1940—after 25 years there.

Kauffer lived in New York for 14 years, until his death in 1954. Though he worked for various clients during that times, he was never given the same recognition he enjoyed in England. With a few notable exceptions, the honors came posthumously. Indeed, only after 38 years is he finally the recipient of an AIGA award.
