Mixed flowers on pink cloth (oil painting (visual work); Roderic O'Conor (Irish painter, 1860-1940); ca. 1916; Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa (Wellington, Welling...; registration number: 1961-0003-1)
Note: O’Conor frequently favoured the sensual and passionate appeal of the colour red in his still-life and female figure paintings, and in this flower study it is the dominant element of the colour scheme. The brilliant blooms of crimson, scarlet and vermilion are intensified by their juxtaposition with the acid greens and yellows of the vase and other flowers, and the dark green of the foliage. There are red tints in the warm brown-ochre background, and the colour is carried through in the luminously pink foamy wave of tablecloth, which seems to pour over the foreground.
