Pierre Auguste Renoir painted the still-life Bouquet Of Chrysanthemums in 1881 and viewed it as a color study as much as a finished painting. By painting flowers, he felt free to experiment with different color combinations, values, and tones, without worrying about the figures. The Post-Impressionist, Vincent Van Gogh also had the same approach to painting floral still-life, like in the artwork Vase with Poppies, Cornflowers, Peonies and Chrysanthemums.
The painter’s career took an unusual shift during this time. He began as one of the primary artists to found the Impressionist movement, helping organize art shows for modern artists that were not selected by the prestigious exhibitions of the Paris Salon. The Impressionists created an alternative platform for artists that went against the Classic standards imposed by the Academies so that they could propagate their work to a broader audience. But, during the 1880s, Renoir turned his back to the modern methods practiced by his colleagues, in search for traditional techniques.
Renoir shifted his view on art and established a new set of influences, based on artists of the Renaissance and Neo-Classicism. He traveled to many locations and studied many artists, but was particularly astonished by Raphael’s frescos in Italy. Renoir began to work more with structured drawings prior to painting, as well as emphasizing the figure’s shape and definition. The painter also studied classical standards of harmonious compositions.
Many historians define this as the “harsh period,” as Renoir’s main concern was mastering the perfect technique. Some referred this time to his “Ingres period,” for the painter gave considerable attention to realistically portraying the textures of fabrics, as well as giving a velvety quality to the model’s skin, as Ingres did himself. Renoir painted mostly images of beautiful women during this period, but he eventually painted classic still life works as well, like in Bouquet Of Chrysanthemums.
This still-life painting has a very traditional composition, as the bouquet of chrysanthemums is centered on the canvas, and placed on a table – having the edge positioned horizontally. The table is ochre, and the background is brown with areas of violet-blue, as well as orange areas. The vase is dark brown, and the artist was able to elude to the shiny glimmer of light with simple dots of white paint. The flowers create a burst of color in the monochromatic environment, in shades of red, orange, yellow, green, and white.
