Inspired by Robert Burns' poem of 1794. The title of this painting, however, refers not only to the flower held by the young woman, but that she too is a rose, an English rose, with red hair.
In a similar way to how Patrick Caulfield combines two different styles in one painting (e.g. "After Lunch", 1975), here the flower is painted in a quasi photo-realistic style juxtaposed with flat blocks of colour.
Liquitex heavy body acrylic paint applied with palette knives and brushes onto stretched canvas. All edges are finished in the same medium and therefore no frame is required. Supplied ready-to-hang with brass D-rings, brass wire and felt pads fitted.
