Still Life with Red Peppers on a White Lacquered Table, 1915

 
 
 
 
 
Details     Description
   
Artist Vallotton, Félix This painting shows Vallotton as a meticulous realist. Displayed on a white marble table, the peppers, with their hard skins so shiny that they reflect the light, are startlingly tangible. The congealed red on the blade of the knife, placed ominously in the foreground, looks like blood, suggesting that this stilllife, painted during the First World War, held a symbolic meaning for Vallotton.
