Flower Basket
(Cesto de Flores)

The artist painted several canvases of almost identical composition; emphasising the use of light, always leaving the flowers illuminated in the centre, with the background becoming increasingly darker, to near total blackness, but being resourceful enough to achieve great variety in the pictures.

Curiosity : there is a small lizard on the right hand corner of the table.
