This energetic work is a fine example of Claude Venard’s paintings. Through the use of thick impasto and of bold geometric lines, Venard has created a still-life full of dynamism. The paint seems to have been applied roughly with a pallet knife- a method that Venard used in his later works- creating a raw and visceral version of the geometric aesthetic.

The bold lines of the kitchen utensils and of the table are scratched into the paint with a knife, giving energy to the scene and the objects a life of their own. The strong geometric lines, rich colour palette and abstracted composition turns Still Life into a modern masterpiece.
