Still life made by Bert Coppus in Horst in 1949 (according to the inscription on the gin bottle). Bert Coppus has personally told that the work was made in a very early period, when he was still studying at the school for (house) painting techniques St. Lucas in Boxtel. The painting was a test model that served to be admitted to an art academy. What is special is that the work is made on canvas that was cut by the maker from the roof of an Allied truck from WW2. At that time it was difficult to get painting supplies. The painting is still in good condition but needs to be cleaned. The canvas is in reality larger than visible. The painting continues on the back.
Canvas is still in good condition. Is painted on sturdy canvas from an allied truck from WW2. Needs to be cleaned. Has been in an attic for at least 20 years. Frame (plaster) has minor damage here and there.
