This gorgeous piece of art was produced between the years of 1888 and 1890, at the end of Cézanne's career. At this point, he had just moved into his family estate, Jas de Bouffan, due to his father's passing. The artist also received a large inheritance from his father, and spent his last years recluse, dealing with his health and family issues. Despite living in the Jas de Bouffan manor at this point in his life, it is likely Cézanne painted this specific piece while visiting his wife in Paris.
The vertical painting is very particular for Cézanne, turning this painting into a rather unique piece. It shows a beige and green vase of flower, a known traditional souvenir from Provence. The oval vase is painted in two colors, divided horizontally. Cézanne had this approach with painting where he would transform the observations of the real world into simplified geometric forms and apply that into the painting. This artwork is a beautiful example of the migration of the artist towards a new, revolutionary art. It is said that he was one of the most critical bridges connecting the traditional XIX century art with the latest techniques and paths that artists took in the XX century.
The colors in this painting are vibrant and vivid. They are not entirely representational of a realistic aesthetic, yet, they represent light and shadow, and even subtleties like the texture of the materials. It's possible to see the shiny glazed material of the vase. The table's surface is made of a thick, non-reflective material. It's possible to see a natural organic texture on the leaves, flowers, and oranges on the table.
The palette is really interesting. The background that sets the tone of the scene is painted in bright hues of light blue sky. They are mixed with some patches of a bright light yellow and get darker to the top left corner as if an object shaded that place. The vase's color is very similar to the tulips' leaves. There is a mass of dark green connecting the top part of the vase with the leaves on the bottom. Near the top of the vase, there is a small bunch of yellow flowers that are not tulips.
The tulips stand out against the blue background, as they are colored in vibrant tones of red and carmine. This beautiful contrast of vivid colors creates an intense shimmering atmosphere.
