A vibrant oil on canvas late 20th Century Newlyn School still life of poppies in a red jug signed Miller.

An uplifting image that captures the post war St Ives, Newlyn, Trioka vibe

Remembrance Day symbolism
Struck by the sight of bright red blooms on broken war ravaged ground, World War I brigade surgeon John McCrae wrote a poem, “In Flanders Field,” in which he channeled the voice of the fallen soldiers buried under those hardy poppies.

Oil on canvas

40cm x 39.5cm

Circa 1970’s

Red Corn Poppy, American Legion Poppy and Flanders Poppy, each name refers to the same flower. The Red Poppy is native to southern Europe and has been associated with ploughed fields for many centuries. The name ‘Flanders Poppy’ refers to the aftermath of that terrible WWI battle on Flanders Field where these poppies grew into abundance.
