When Van Gogh saw the work of modern French artists in Paris, he realized he would have to change the dark Dutch colors in his paintings. He showed with this still life that he was a genuine colorist, working almost exclusively with shades of yellow, as well as a little green, blue, red and pink. He used threads of wool to try out color combinations before beginning to paint.
Van Gogh also painted the frame of this work. It is the only original frame that has survived. He dedicated the painting to Theo, who had frequently encouraged him to add more color to his work.
