This vintage Scandinavian painting is a good example of the post impressionist style, using more vivid and bold color, while retaining the style of loose brushstrokes, and style of the earlier artists. This interior still life scene displays a slanting blue table cover in a bold color against the grayed out background in order to draw the eye toward the vases of flowers and bowl of fruit contrasted against the lace trimmed white tablecloth.
