Still Life with Vase of Hawthorn, Bowl of Cherries, Japanese Bowl, and Cup and Saucer  1872

by Henri Fantin-Latour

From the plump cherries, to the lacy blossoms of the hawthorn flower, to the smooth surfaces of the ceramic dish and porcelain cup and saucer, this painting is a carefully observed arrangement of circular forms. Henri Théodore Fantin–Latour sensitively differentiates the light–reflecting qualities of each object. [url=
