SharpJohn - Vase of Asters.JPG
In a darkened room, light dramatically illuminates an arrangement of flowers and dried oak leaves in a simple white vase. The leaf shapes and Sharp’s brushwork create a flamelike appearance, albeit in a more muted color palette—even the bouquet’s…

rollo yellow bouquet@3x.jpg
A white vase, holding what appears to be baby’s breath and several varieties of marigolds, sits upon a table. Its blaze of yellow, orange, and red overwhelms muted pinks and mauves of the table covering and wallpaper. Rollo accentuates this emphasis…

WinogradHelen - Mexican Bric-a-Brac.jpg
The range of bric-a-brac depicted here is quite broad: a blue glass bottle, a painted ceramic plate, a napkin and cloth, a pair of blue shoes, a flower, a magazine, and what appears to be an avocado. Attempting to chart an underlying symbolism, in…

WinogradHelen - Flowers and Fruit.JPG
Winograd uses a post-impressionist framework to depict household objects and the geometry of their surrounding space. Shapes are disrupted by vertical lines (like the pears and pitchers) or become radically abstracted (like green leaves as…

Kadulin - July Flowers.JPG

SpectorGeorge - Peonies.JPG
The focus of the still life painting is a vase of multicolored peonies. Spector shows skillful creation of the 3D geometric forms of the flower petals and vase, with a light source coming from the bottom right. The background is unusual in its…

KovnerSaul - Fruit and Drapery.JPG
This complex still life plays with how the natural world makes its way into artistic forms and representation. A grouping of fruit at upper left is echoed in the fabric’s shapes at lower right, as with the bell pepper’s distinctive shape. A pear at…

Zemachson - Autumn Bouquet.JPG
Against a backdrop of muted, almost murky tones in brown, green, and tan, we see a still life of flowers in an earthenware jar along with various fruits. Their colors likewise are subdued; golds, reds, and oranges are illuminated by autumnal light in…

WittenBunty - Lilies.JPG
From slightly above a table, we look down upon a vase of trumpet lilies playing in all directions, their green foliage lush. A dark background adds dramatic contrast the white lilies. Next to the vase is a figure wearing a helmet or headress with a…
