Description of the painting by Pierre Auguste Renoir "Flowers in a Vase"


In his declining years, the great painter Pierre Auguste Renoir passionately loved painting roses. The author tried to convey not so much their impeccable external component, but the feeling that causes the flower. Nobleness, tenderness, naturalness, inexhaustible beauty of nature - all this is read in the image of roses.

Recent paintings by the author are slightly deviated from the usual manner of work. So, the transparent strokes, applied layer by layer on the surface of the canvas, were replaced by more confident and thicker lines that did not require additional adjustment. Instead of shading and the nebula of work, clearer contours and ornate lines characteristic of expressionism loomed. So, the natural bends of roses are transmitted not with the help of a detailed drawing of the petals and the stem, but with the help of smoothly curved lines superimposed on each other in layers. All strokes that use the form of roses are subject to a single rhythm, which makes the bouquet even more harmonious and holistic.

The predominant shades on the canvas are pink and orange. Pink buds contain blotches of white, orange, and sometimes even blue. Yellow flowers create a harmonious contrast with pink buds, containing white, pink and orange. Darker shades are mainly used to emphasize the bends of the petals and add volume. Lush buds are placed in a thin vase, on which you can see an ornament of blue flowers. Under it are several large buds, carelessly scattered on the table. They have a single color scheme with flowers located in a vase.

Placing roses under the central elements of the picture adds liveliness and realism, with the help of this technique it does not look planar and boring. In general, the image causes delight and awe of the beauty of nature, so there is a desire to reach out to the lush buds and touch the infinitely beautiful.
