A still life built on the complementaries of red and green, as if combining the Old Master qualities of a Velasquez with the vibrant colours of a Matisse, this is an unusual and striking composition. The heart-shaped cherry plums and softer reds of the glazed cassoulet sing out against the dull green leaves and acidic shades of the pears, creating, on the white linen cloth, an intense island of light and colour in the earthy dimness of the background.
