Description & Technical information

Charles Camoin’s Flowers depicts one of his most beloved subjects- the still-life. Here Camoin uses the colour palette of the fauvist, whilst simultaneously combining this with the impasto of the Impressionists. The bright bold colours present a vivid representation of everyday items, while his use of impasto gives the impression that he spontaneously dashed the paint on the canvas, as is typical of his work. The use of impasto and bright colours also recalls the work of Renoir - an artist Camoin was influenced by throughout his career. Flowers  is indicative of Camoin’s later work where spontaneity, voluptuousness and sensuality are the order of the day.
