This is one of the many still lifes written by Van Gogh in Paris. Fascinated by the ideas of impressionism, he begins to perceive in a new way nature and everything that surrounds him. Means of expression of these emotions are new pure colors, contrasting combinations of bright colors. This approach is characterized by all the works written by the artist during this period, and especially this applies to still lifes.
In this painting, the artist captured a bouquet of flowers on a blue background. The composition of the still life is simple: on the surface of the table there is a ceramic blue vase with flowers.
The color scheme is based on contrasting combinations of blue and yellow, complemented by a white mass of lilac flowers and two different anemones in color. Contrasts lead to an increase in natural shades, but are not sharp. On the contrary, the picture is executed with great tenderness and love. It expressed admiration for the author of flowers, which were always considered the embodiment of spring.
