• One of Oskar Kokoschka's flower watercolors which are particularly sought-after for their fresh and strong colors. • Kokoschka's talents in both graphic art and painting become particularly obvious in his true-to-life flower watercolors. • Kokoschka executes the delicate watercolor onto the paper without a preliminary drawing..
We are grateful to Dr. Alfred Weidinger for his kind expert advice.
