Description Pink and white roses are placed against a dark background. Adolphe Joseph Thomas Monticelli studied under Paul Delaroche at the École des Beaux-Arts. In 1855 he met Narcisse Diaz, a member of the Barbizon school. He painted landscapes and courtly subjects inspired by Antoine Watteau; he also painted still lifes, portraits, and Orientalist subjects inspired by the art of Eugene Delacroix. He developed an individual style, based on Romantic painting; his works were richly coloured and textured, especially in his last years. The expressive brush strokes and impastoed surface of YORAG : 575 point to his later years, it might have even been painted in the 1880s.
