Wattson vanitas painting Grandma's Violet

Description: In the tradition of the 17th century still life painters, contemporary colorist painter Kate Wattson combines a violet plant with a skull for this vanitas painting. Originally, such paintings were meant as moralizing images to remind the viewer that life is fleeting. Kate Wattson's witty title suggests that life passes, we miss the old girl--and it's all OK. This painting is typical of this artist's bold handling of color and form. View detail. Contemporary colorist painter Kate Wattson was trained in the academic realist tradition. Wattson uses this education as a springboard into a personal vision of color balanced with an abstract sense of space and composition.
