Still Life with Plate

Catalog# VILAB-002

A floral arrangement of yellows, whites, blues and pinks stands center in a tall, green pitcher with a thin, curved handle. Beside it a golden copper plate, embossed and reflective of the light coming from the left. Fallen peddles and greenery are piled on the right and lightly sprinkled around the base of the vase. Dark shadows lay behind the vase and flowers. The backdrop is a dark brown in the shadows on the left and light beige in the light on the right. The ground where the base of the pitcher rests is also a brown color – varying in hue depending on the light.
