Florero / Alfredo Zalce, 1908 - 2003, Mexican (Artist)

Essay/Description

In Florero, the sun dominates most of the composition as it shines down on the foliage below. Zalce’s use of bright colors and dynamic lines brings to mind seasons of change, particularly the energetic regrowth of the spring.
