About Still life with Sunflower

Piet Mondrian’s “Still life with Sunflower,” crafted in 1907, is an oil-on-wood artwork which exemplifies the Impressionist movement. This still life piece is located at the Detroit Institute of Arts in Detroit, Michigan, USA.

The artwork displays a vivid depiction of a sunflower standing prominently in a vase, with the central bloom fully facing the viewer, engaging with its bright yellow petals surrounding a dark, textured center. Accompanied by green foliage, the plant seems to contrast against a muted background. The vase, with soft reflective qualities, suggests a sense of depth and translucency. The overall impression is one of vibrant life captured through loose brushstrokes characteristic of the Impressionist style, which emphasizes the play of light and color rather than detailed representation.
