Gift of the artist
Dried Flowers in the Window, like all the still lifes with which Tetsis concerns himself, is a pure painting of objects which does not have either the depiction of the object or the act itself of the artist as its aim, since here too he builds the surfaces of the table and the chair, the jug and the flowers, the window and the curtains with colour. Colour patterns in large units, planes of space in which the relation between the complementary colours is absorbed by the general tonal harmony, suggest a sense of calm which becomes clear by the use of the light water-colour, which, despite the dense paint, gives a fluidity to the composition.
