ROBERT KULICKE (American, 1924-2007)
    Still Life of Flowers in a White Porcelain Vase, 1971
    Oil on board
    7-1/2 x 7 inches (19.1 x 17.8 cm)
    Faintly signed and dated lower center: Kulicke 71

    Columbia Museum of Art, Columbia, South Carolina, October 30-November 27, 1983.

    Graham Williford knew the artist Robert Kulicke personally, and Kulicke's name and address appear in Williford's daybooks periodically during the 1970s (320 W 90 St., Apt. 1A, New York, 873-5792) [archives of the Williford Foundation, Fairfield, Texas]. A longtime admirer of Kulicke's paintings, Williford collected several examples of his tender still lifes--usually small arrangements of highly-keyed flowers in a vase such as the present work, or small studies of a few pieces of fruit on a plain ledge.
