Dahlias And Fruit - Irma Stern - Floral Painting - Large Art Prints
Irma Stern’s best paintings confirm her stature as a consummate artist and celebrated colourist. Nowhere is this better observed than in her still life paintings. As acknowledged Stern authority, Marion Arnold, reminds us, “although many of Irma Stern’s wide range of subjects derived from hasty notations during her travels, the interior spaces of her home and the sanctuary that was her studio were as important to her as the world at large. Her still life paintings comprise some of her most sumptuous and sensual images. Here – in her depictions of objects – she fuses form and content, Modernist preoccupations with visual language, and social commentary on nature and material culture”. Dahlias and Fruit is undoubtedly one of the most vibrant paintings Stern ever produced. Alive with colour and bursting with energy, it draws the viewer into the heart of its luscious array of flowers and fruits. Complementary colours are made to animate one another: crimson reds vibrate against lush greens, the vivid lemon vase accentuates the lilac blooms and cloth, while orange dahlias pulse against the blue background. Her joy in both the subject and her medium of paint is palpable reminding us how much Stern enjoyed food and flowers, whether capturing their voluptuous forms or consuming them in ample quantities! This glorious still life has all the immediacy of a work painted with passion and completed in the heat of the moment without hesitation.
