About the Artwork

A tangle of yellow-and-red flowers emerge from a brownish vase. Zig-zagging strokes animate the table; dashes of lime green electrify the bouquet and the garden glimpsed through a doorway. (The composition, blocked at left and with a suggestion of deeper space at right, echoes that of Henri Matisse's nearby Studio with Goldfish). Soutine's bouquet, arguably the most bilious at the Barnes, bears witness to a comment that he "threw colors on the canvas like poisoned butterflies" and challenges viewers to analyze their own aesthetic responses, whatever those may be.
