The brilliant artist, founder of impressionism Auguste Renoir is known as an unsurpassed master of painting. He was especially good at still life. Auguste took everyday life and bewitching women as the basis of his stories. Only occasionally did the master decide to paint flowers. All his works are filled with air, saturated with lightness and sun. The color scheme is quite soft. The paintings consist of shades of pink, blue, lilac, muted green.
Recalling the artist’s work, one cannot fail to note one of his famous masterpieces - “Still Life with a Large Flower Vase”. The work was completed in 1866 and quickly gained popularity. The plot of the canvas is simple and straightforward, but made subtly and elegantly. In the inflorescences of wildflowers, wild roses, odorous herbs, a large blue-blue vase is buried. The proportions of the bouquet are so calibrated, and the details are so carefully written that the imagination can not stand still. It seems like another minute and a thin pink petal will fall on the brown rough surface of the table. The reason will be a gust of light wind, bringing an unusual gentle smell of plants.
It is believed that Renoir created such works with the aim of generating income. The artist did not have to rely on a lot of money. However, such stories were sold out with pleasure and to our time almost completely dispersed to private collections.
