Pierre-Auguste Renoir painted Flower Study in 1913, a breathtaking Impressionistic still life painting. Although its date is unknown, the painting A Bowlful of Roses is probably the finished version of this study. This artwork differs from most still life paintings as the artist was not concerned in concluding a study of depth and composition, but in placing ear flower upon the same spatial plane, giving a sense of movement and energy.
The Impressionists mostly painted en plein air, meaning they painted outside to capture the sunlight on the landscape, but on some occasions, they worked with indoor themes like still life paintings. In both cases, the primary subject is nature – a great passion of Renoir and his colleagues. One of the great influences that lead these modern painters to reconnect with nature was the Japanese woodcut prints portraying exotic landscapes and blossoming vegetations.
This still-life was painted in an almost abstract way, as Renoir used expressive and very loose brushstrokes. The artist plays with his use of colors, inserting tonalities of yellow, white, green, blue, red, purple, and pink – a reflection of the strong ideals of the time that emerged into the Impressionist movement. Flower Study is distinctive for the style that Pierre-Auguste Renoir would become famous. Experimenting with the tonalities and difference in saturation achieved by the light, the artist created an intimate scene, in which inserted the viewer in the artwork.
Renoir was very influenced by Realist artists, like Gustave Courbet and Édouard Manet, along with their rejection of the subjects portrayed by Romanticists – as he chose humble themes that spoke to his own experiences. Although there was a certain rejection with the Romanticists, Renoir admired the way Eugène Delacroix captured the human movements.
This floral still-life is captivating to the spectator with a warm color palette. Renoir used red-orange pigments, along with pink and yellow to create the illusion of rose petals with very loose and not defined brush strokes. Renoir also includes areas of blue and dark green, creating a beautiful harmony. Even though this study is not abstract, it is harder to understand the forms of the flowers than in A Bowlful of Roses. Flower Study is stark in its simplicity, yet was once a revolutionary study of life.
