Pierre-Auguste Renoir's Armful Of Roses is an essential and majestic analysis of the swarming vitality of a still-life painted in 1918. Rather than practicing a studied depth of focus, the artist places each of the blooming petals along the same spatial plane, imparting a sense of movement and energy. Reminiscent of the time-lapse moving images of emerging buds that would only become possible after his death, Renoir scales down the elements of plant growth to an experience of a rapid and surprising burst of color.
Paintings such as this reproduction of a still-life are deeply imbued with the heady ideals of its day, in which broadly visible brushstrokes, a confident and natural use of an ample palette and a more experiential depiction of light gave rise to a revolution in art history – that of Impressionism. Renoir painted a similar still-life entitled A Bowlful of Roses.
Armful Of Roses is typical of the style for which Pierre-Auguste Renoir would become famous. Remarkable in its deep saturation of color and dancing shades of light, the painting is no simple reproduction. The Impressionists enjoyed focusing on intimate encounters, so the subject felt almost close enough to touch, and liked to emphasize candor in their depiction.
Greatly influenced by Realists Gustave Courbet and Édouard Manet in their rejection of the exotic subject matters of the Romanticists, Renoir's subjects were humble and imbued with the vibrancy of lived experience. This simple, yet highly complex, the effect was achieved through an intimate knowledge of the leading painters of the day. Eugène Delacroix's methods for capturing the ways that humans enact and perceive movement was certainly a significant influence on the work of Renoir, as was the remarkable way a Camille Corot painting captured the passing of time.
This floral still-life is captivating to the viewer with its warm color palette. Renoir used red-orange pigments, along with pink and yellow to create the illusion of ruffled roses. The leaves can be seen from underneath the blossoms, and the painting is in a horizontal position. The canvas is rough, and its texture can be seen on the corners of the painting, as the layers of paint are thinner in these areas than on the center. Armful Of Roses is stark in its simplicity, yet was once a revolutionary study of life.
