Here Lucien Ohl has depicted the blooming red flowers of the flamboyant tree. Using thick impasto he has recreated the abundant flowers of the tree as well as the shimmering heat of the tropical landscape, a prime example of his style. The tree is endemic to the forests of Madagascar but has been introduced into other tropical and sub-tropical regions worldwide. It flowers in Indonesia during the months of November and December.
