Marc Chagall's Flowers

Flower Still Life Ipad Redo, copyright Nina Leung, 2013

Marc Chagall's work is so expressive. In his Flower Still Life, that I recreated above, his Fauvist background really comes through. He understood the importance of expressing emotion through color and lightly abstracted forms. His paintings have a dream-like quality which comes from the recognizable objects and forms, but he only uses them as compositional objects. They could tell a story, but that was not necessarily his intention. His paintings are very expressive.

I love this particular work for the arrangement of color and quick, seemingly wild brushstrokes, and the rhythm of the leaves and flowers.
