Moïse Kisling is a Polish-born artist, who was a central member of the School of Paris. Born in 1891, he faced and got through the one of the most dramatic periods of European history. The artist worked in various styles throughout his career. His portraits with huge eyes never aim to present physiological analysis, he just precisely conveys physical aspect and everyday life, combining it with specific color transitions. Still lives exemplify the changes from Cubism to Postmodern, Symbolism and, finally, Realism. “Vase of Mimosa” is a tender piece created in New York in 1945. In the upper left corner one can see a dedication.
An armful of beautiful fluffy mimosa assembles in the oval form. The light blue background envelops the bouquet, transmitting transparency of the air, that is full of pleasant aroma. The vase repeats rounded shape of the bouquet and complements it.
Remarkably, Kisling’s flower painting are expensive and at the same very structurally organised. Vertical artworks are constrained in their compositions. Mimosa or any other blossoms never come even near to the borders of canvases. These paintings seems to emit the inner modesty.

Especially, three species of flowers and their three vibrant colors make the painting light and airy. White, scarlet and purple flow freely into each other.
