This bold, bright still life brings to mind Picasso’s signature use of color to enhance and enliven any subject from the still life genre. The cool, inviting tones of blues and violets are accented further with bright oranges and yellows. They are further offset by the warm tones of the reds and maroons that help bring Le Homard to life.
