Pierre Auguste Renoir quite often turned to the images of flowers in his paintings. Chrysanthemums enjoyed his special love, he always tried to show them from the most advantageous side.
Unlike Claude Monet, who put a deep hidden meaning in each of his floral still life, Renoir rather simply admired beautiful flowers. Renoir painted floral paintings quickly, in one breath, but despite this, they are all ideally aligned in composition and harmonious colors, which testifies to the great skill and talent of Pierre Auguste Renoir.
The great Frenchman rightly believed that the picture should be bright, radiate joy. This applies to all of his works, including the painting “Chrysanthemums”, which once again emphasizes Renoir’s bright style and refined taste.
