Image: Vase of Flowers
The subject of flowers in a vase is a standard one in Western art, but for Price, as for Van Gogh, flowers could be the basis of an intense, emotional painting. The blossoms provide Price with the opportunity to paint freely and colorfully, using brush and palette knife to create a pyrotechnical display of exploding colors. The artist painted this work as a wedding present for his niece, Edith Price Walford.
