Reproduction, Sunflowers

This is a Reproduction. It was created by E. McKnight Kauffer. It is dated 1917. Its medium is oil on canvas. It is a part of the department.

In Europe, Kauffer became familiar with the works of Paul Cézanne and Vincent van Gogh, two late 19th-century artists. He began to imitate their techniques in his own paintings. Over the next several years, Kauffer’s style evolved as he was influenced by a variety of artists. The critical reception to his art was mixed, but Kauffer was frequently celebrated for his strong use of color.
