About Flowers Sun

The artwork “Flowers Sun” by Piet Mondrian dates back to 1909 and stands as a testament to the artist’s explorative phase within the Impressionism movement. This flower painting, which is held in a private collection, reflects the characteristic techniques and sensibilities of Impressionist works from that era, capturing the light and atmosphere that marked the movement and influenced Mondrian’s earlier artistic endeavours.

The artwork presents a study in light and shadow, where delicate flowers, seemingly irises, are depicted with soft brush strokes and a subtle interplay of colors. The flowers are rendered in a palette that primarily includes tones of white and blue, punctuated by the vibrant yellow and orange of the stamens. Set against a loosely painted blue background, the composition achieves a sense of depth and natural luminosity. The vase, painted with broader, more definite strokes, anchors the composition, providing both contrast and balance to the ethereal blooms. Moreover, the somewhat muted color scheme and the visible brushwork are indicative of the Impressionist focus on capturing the fleeting qualities of light.

While the artwork conveys a certain delicacy, there is also an impression of spontaneity in the execution, inviting the viewer to appreciate the transient beauty of the natural world as seen through Mondrian’s evolving artistic vision.
