(High-Collectible) ("Best-of-its-Type Sold in 2019”)The pair of cockatoos sitting in the branches of a towering tree amidst an extraordinary display of cascading boughs is a startlingly fecund image. Traditionally in this design style, a multi-branched tree could host numerous floral species, animals and birds. Here in a remarkable, and realistic, departure almost the whole ruby toned field is blanketed in a single variety of blossom, expertly differentiating between each flowerhead through the delicate undulation between azure, cerulean, and celadon. But the other brilliant inspiration of this piece is the peacocks. Two very large ones roost on the top of the arch, while the impressionistic main border hides 24 more, denoted in red outlining, that masterfully makes them seem transparent amid the blues of the border.
