Untitled [Still Life with a Bunch of Flowers] by Frances Hodgkins

Artwork Detail

Objects on mantelpieces was a popular subject throughout Frances Hodgkins’ career. Here a sheaf of pink flowers similar to carnations lie cocooned in their white tissue. The tall glass vase

for which they are destined stands beside them, its reflection glistening in the mirror behind. Compositions such as this were a pleasing alternative to scenes that called for deep space, and suggest that the artist is very close to her subject matter.
