Although Caillebotte was a lifelong gardener, his interest in floral subjects did not develop until the 1880s. This work depicts flowers that he cultivated on his property at Petit-Gennevilliers, a small town on the Seine just northwest of Paris. Chrysanthemums were hugely popular in France, celebrated for their resplendent colors and associations with East Asia, whose arts and cultures were greatly admired by Europeans. This unusual, close-up view of densely packed blossoms has been related to CaillebotteÂ© ï¿½s project for dining room doors ornamented with images of plantsÂ© ï¿½a conception akin to the decorative series that his friend Monet based on his own garden at Giverny.
