This vintage Scandinavian painting is a good example of the post impressionist style, using more vivid and bold color, while retaining the style of loose brushstrokes, and style of the earlier artists. This interior scene displays a slanting blue table in a bold color against the grayed out background in order to draw the eye toward the vases of flowers and bowl of fruit sitting on the white cloth.
