Bright Bouquet

20th century French oil on canvas still life painting mounted on wood and signed in the lower right Hilda Clements Hassell (1871-1949). The work has texture to the touch.

A still life with flowers and a vase seemingly illuminated, reducing shadows and reflections to blurs. This luminosity is carried by a palette of strong colors which recalls the chromatic audacity of Fauvism, from which Hassell seems to have drawn inspiration. Even the outlines and the geometry are simplified to enhance the color and lean into the Fauvist instinct over the Impressionist emotion.

About the artist: Hilda Clements Hassell was a British post-Impressionist painter born in 1871. She died in 1949. She travelled frequently and studied light and color palettes during her time abroad.
