Historical Context:
The strong use of color and emphasis on making each physical mark of every brush stroke show the influence of the Fauvist movement in Jean-Claude Picot’s artwork. Picot’s vibrant colors are created through the use of mediums such as oil, acrylic and watercolor paint. Picot’s unique style emphasizes the application of color with expressive use of form and line. Although this is an example of a still life image he painted; Picot was better known for his romanticized, animated landscapes.
