Still Life with Flowers
Antoine Berjon

Berjon worked mainly in his native Lyon, an important centre for the production of floral silks (see the dress of Ingres’s Madame Moitessier). At first a fabric designer, he became the leading figure of the Lyonese school of flower painters. Here his casual arrangement of the basket and precisely textured peaches and petals – the orange nasturtium is ready to fall – gives a sense of movement to this still life.
