Much of Scauflaire’s work is representational; he produced numbers of portraits, figure studies and nudes, which show influences running from Picasso to Paul Delvaux with a hint of Modigliani, and a similarly varied range of still life subjects. However, a rare abstract or two creeps in amongst the others: for example, Composition of 1937, with its floating autumnal pattern based on playing cards. The present work creates a tension of segmental and triangular forms, angular shapes and soft curves; it is painted in a harmony of earth colours, greys and greens – shading from bottle green and teal to olive and eau de nil. The bottle is a flask-like shape, placed on a table with a scalloped tablecloth, surrounded by padded chairs, art deco stools and lamps… perhaps.
