About Pink Peonies

The artwork “Pink Peonies” was created by the artist Camille Pissarro in 1873. This oil on canvas painting exemplifies the Impressionism movement and measures 73 x 60 cm. The piece is a flower painting genre, and it is currently housed in the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford, UK.

In the painting, a bouquet of lush pink peonies is displayed in a vase, which sits on a table or surface rendered with warm tones. The peonies are depicted with a sense of freshness and delicacy, with various shades of pink and brushstrokes that capture the light and texture of the petals. The foliage of the flowers bursts from the top of the vase, which is decorated with blue floral motifs. The impressionistic style is evident in the loose, expressive way Pissarro has applied the paint, giving rise to a vibrant, yet fleeting sensation typical of the movement he was a part of. The background and table are rendered with subtlety, allowing the flowers to be the focal point of the piece.
