Onions, although humble, earthy objects, fascinate painters with their variety of colour and finish – the dry, papery skins; the polished sheen of soft brown, purple or white; the dull twist of the sprout; the tentacular splay of roots. This little watercolour, with its carefully modulated harmony of russet and Vandyke browns, and its casual, frieze-like composition of other humble kitchen objects, is following in the tradition, not only of Chardin’s work, but of Impressionist paintings such as Renoir’s The onions, Gauguin’s Onions & Japanese woodcut, various works by Cézanne, and still life paintings by the master of fish, William Merritt Chase.
