French, early 20th century, oil on canvas still life painting signed J. Lafont.
The most exquisitely painted still life, with hugely post impressionistic influences.
Painted in the early 20th century, and very much in the style of the French post impressionists, especially the Van Gogh influenced, linear brush marks of colour.
I have drawn a blank with my searches for artists with this signature but can't help but think that they may even have sat alongside the greatest artists of the time.
For now, J. Lafont, Lafort , Lufant? must remain a mystery.
In good condition with age mellowed paint and stable, but cracked paint surfaces.
