This painting forever preserves the exquisite balance and vivacious foliage of Liriodendron tulipifera. Freshly torn from a branch, its protruding, high-shouldered leaves float around the stem like a carousel at rest, buoying the entire plant in perpetual uplift. In contrast to the eager unfurling of new leaves, the flower bloom seems somber and yet remains the star of this silent drama.
