Historical Description:
This beautiful array of bright violet and pink flowers appears to come alive amidst the rich hues and tones of the print. The various, subtle yellows and browns of the composition contrast nicely with the purple arrangement, allowing it to emanate with the radiance and vibrance of spring. This stunning vase of a bright and colorful arrangement of flowers gives new meaning to the still life genre. Braque helped redefine the meaning of the still life, adding a vibrant energy and evocative emotion inherent in the color and strokes of the work. The deep yellows and browns of the vase helps bring out the delicate speckles of pink and violet flowers, which hang loosely over the side. The flowers themselves appear to bleed in with the remaining tones of the background, allowing for a depth and richness that makes Braque's work so extraordinary.

Created c. 1960, this color etching and aquatint is hand signed by Georges Braque (Argenteuil, Val-d'Oise, 1882 - Paris, 1963) in pencil in the lower right margin and numbered from the edition of 200 in pencil in the lower left margin. This work was published by Atelier Crommelynck, Paris.
