Pierre Auguste Renoir began the still-life Vase Basket Of Flowers And Fruit in 1889 and concluded the painting a year after. This period was significant for the artist, as he was becoming more successful. Because of his financial stability, in 1890 he and his partner Aline Charigot – who had a five-year-old child with Renoir – got married. Charigot was the Impressionist’s muse and appears in many of his works, like Country Dance, and Motherhood (Woman breast feeding her Child), where Charigot is portrayed with their son Pierre.
During the past decade – during the 1880s – Renoir’s career was marked by a shift of style. The artist turned his back on the Impressionism, for he didn’t believe it was the right direction to take with his work. Instead of expressive brush strokes and focus on bright color palettes, the painter decided to follow a more Classic path. Renoir traveled around Europe to study about painting techniques, mainly Italy, where he was amazed by Raphael’s frescos. He began directing his attention to structured compositions with underdrawings, as well as well-defined figures.
Although during this period the artist appeared to reject the Impressionist style he had popularized, Vase Basket Of Flowers And Fruit marks another time of change in his way of working. The attention to detail is significant in this still life painting and highlights its decorative value. Renoir mainly portrayed nudes and domestic subjects after 1890, as he shifts back to his earlier style.
By painting flowers, Renoir 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. Although, in Vase Basket Of Flowers And Fruit, the artist pays attention to the figures, as much as the composition and colors. Playing with the light and dark of the background, the artist balanced the different figures in this masterpiece of still-life paintings.
Renoir was able to mix many different materials – like a wicker basket, a variation of ceramic vases, and a wooden table – to create a beautiful unity with the variety of flowers and fruit. The combinations of colors and textures on the forefront can be overwhelming to the viewer, but the artist created a resting area for the eyes in the background.
