Ella Ehrenberger - After the Ball

As a change of pace, for today’s “Ball” selection I will share a still-life. In this piece Austrian painter Ella Ehrenberger supplies a table top scene featuring various items from an evening spent at the ball. One will notice jewelry, a fan, flowers, and various garments. I like how the off-white of the garments blends into the tablecloth and background. I detect some faint shades of green and blue within these items as well. You will notice Ehrenberger has carefully rendered the designs of each fabric as well as the various creases and folds found throughout. I also admire his mid-tone shadows within these elements, which stand in contrast to the dark values of the bouquet, our painting’s focal point. Excellent.
