In sharp contrast to his strict cubist style, this work offers a view of Braques (Argenteuil-sur-Seine, 1882- Paris, 1963) more mature whimsical aesthetic. In contrast to his classic cubist style, the imagery in this piece is clearly defined as a vase of flowers; however, the artist plays with form depicting only what is necessary. Thick painterly strokes delineate the figure of a white vase filled with beautiful, blooming yellow flowers. The vibrant yellow of the flower's petals contrasts nicely against the brown and beige background, causing the flower's to pop out at the viewer amidst the more neutral, earthy tones.
