Armand Guillaumin's Still Life With Flowers is a masterpiece of French Impressionism that has captivated art lovers since its creation in 1886. This painting is a perfect example of Guillaumin's artistic style, characterized by his use of bright colors and his technique of loose and vibrant brushstrokes.

The composition of this work is impressive, with an arrangement of flowers in a glass vase that is in the center of the painting. The vase is surrounded by a variety of fruits and vegetables, which extend into the background of the painting. The composition is balanced and harmonious, with each element carefully placed to create a sense of depth and movement.

Color is another prominent aspect of this painting. Guillaumin uses a palette of bright and saturated colours, which combine to create a feeling of vitality and energy. The warm tones of the fruits and vegetables contrast with the cool and soft tones of the flowers, creating a feeling of balance and harmony.

The story behind this painting is fascinating. Guillaumin was a close friend of Vincent van Gogh and Paul Cézanne, and his work was highly influential in the development of Impressionism. Despite this, Guillaumin never achieved the same fame as his contemporaries, and his work was often overlooked by art critics.

Despite his lack of recognition, Guillaumin continued to paint and create impressive works of art such as the Still Life With Flowers. This painting is a perfect example of his talent and ability to capture the beauty and vibrancy of nature in his work.
