Jean Carolus
Arranging the Flowers


Signed (at lower right): J. Carolus Very little is known about Belgian artist Jean Carolus, other than he was an academic genre painter who was active in France from about 1855 to 1880, and was noted for his interior scenes from the eighteenth century. Carlous’ works evince an academic finish and are usually sentimental subjects of women, either in groups enjoying tea or a music recital, or alone in romantic reverie, as in the present painting. In “Arranging the Flowers,” an elegantly dressed woman, apparently awaiting the return of her lover, is lost in introspection as she arranges a vase of roses and daisies. She stops momentarily to pluck a petal from a daisy she holds in her hand. An open envelope, possibly containing news from her lover, lies discarded on the floor. Out the portal at the right is a veranda that looks onto a veritable fantasy land of creeping vines and verdant forest.
