The purples, blues and acid greens of Matthew Smith's brooding, expressionist Pont-Aven Landscape are more usually associated with his Cornish paintings of 1920. In contrast, the explosion of impulsive brushstrokes and hot, saturated reds, to be found in Roses in a Vase, show him at his most characteristic.
