Kristjan Teder Peonies 1947 Oil on canvas 100 × 82 cm

Teder travelled in Abkhazia and in Southern Estonia in 1947, but still returned time and again to his favourite motif, the still-life. Lightness was added to his style of treating his subject matter. Compared to his painting Dahlias, he is more detailed and airy, although he once again uses the motif of the open window. The light streaming in through it also makes the bouquet brighter. Teder stresses the effect of colours even more: we even notice the slight colouring of the tablecloth and the wall.
