Vase of Chrysanthemums is one of several still-life depictions of flowers by the French painter Renoir (1841-1919)
It stands, for example, besides his near contemporary work entitled 'Vase of Lilies and Roses'. Renoir's paintings are characterized by their highly colorful style, but Vase of Chrysanthemums really is a riot of color. It was painted in the early midpoint of the artist's career, sometime in the period 1880-1882.
As can be deduced from the title of this painting, it depicts a vase filled with chrysanthemums of all colors.
Some of the chrysanthemum heads lie on the wooden surface that the vase rests on, but (contrary to what one might expect from the memento mori genre of still life paintings, which often depict flowers dying or dead) they seem to be as bursting with life as the flowers that are actually in the vase.
The whole painting has an essential vitality to it - like so many of Renoir's artworks, Vase of Chrysanthemums is filled with possibility, dynamism, and liveliness. Whether he was painting a human sitter or a vase of flowers, this was a key characteristic of Renoir's paintings.
Chrysanthemums were a favorite topic of many painters who were roughly contemporary to Renoir. For instance, Vincent Van Gogh, the Expressionist painter depicted several vases containing these flowers in his works, alongside other blooms such as poppies and cornflowers.
