About this artwork

Cadell employed a limited stock of objects in his still lifes with the fan and the ceramics seen here reappearing in several other works. The painting is undated, but the steeply banked perspective and decorative sense of pattern are typical of his work of the early 1920s. Cadell painted a series of colourful still lifes, which caused some controversy when first exhibited.
