Flowers, 1883 - William Merritt Chase Fine Art Postcard

The painting "Flowers, 1883" features a vibrant bouquet of roses in a tall, black ceramic vase. The vase sits on a green tabletop, which takes up the lower third of the image. The roses are the clear focal point of the artwork. There are multiple blooms in various stages of life, from tight buds to fully open flowers. Their colors range from deep pink to soft white, with some hints of yellow and red. The artist has used loose brushstrokes and vibrant colors to create a sense of informality and capture the beauty of the flowers. The black vase contrasts sharply with the colorful roses, highlighting their delicate forms. The background is a muted olive green, which allows the roses to take center stage.
