Johan Laurentz Jensen Flower painting
Danish artist, Johan Laurentz Jensen specialized in painting flowers. His floral arrangements have decorative and symbolic value. Flowers bouquets by Jensen are usually located in a vase standing on a tray. Dark neutral background helped to emphasize the colorful tones. Roses were often the main subject. the contract between light and dark is really prominent with the red roses and brown blackish background. Jensen put a lot of detail into his dark colors, like the leafs in the back, though not noticeable till closer inspection. Also the way he was able to paint a translucent wrapping around the flowers really shows his skill in perception.
