Adolphe Monticelli: 'A Vase of Wild Flowers'

Explore the paintings

Room A: Paintings after 1600

A vase of flowers is displayed on a table. Monticelli has used thick blobs of pure colour to suggest the flowers. The thickness of the paint allowed the artist to use it to model the form of the object as well as to describe the colour.
