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 still lifes, adding a vibrant energy and evocative emotion inherent in the color and strokes of this work. The deep green of the vase helps bring out the delicate speckles of white flowers, which hang loosely over the side. The yellow flowers themselves appear to bleed in with the remaining tones of blues, oranges, and greens, allowing for a depth and richness that makes Braque's work extraordinary.
