Description
Brilliant as the setting sun, this splendid bowl depicts a vermilion deer, with details picked out in black, against a rich orange background. As he nibbles on a fallen leaf, the animal looks over his shoulder and catches our eye; his tail seems to wiggle in the air. He has just become aware of our presence in his bright, fauve world, and seems uncertain of whether to dart away or calmly continue eating. - (PF.0735)
