This is one of Sylvia Sleigh’s most elaborate still life compositions. The yellow chrysanthemums are placed before a mirror, which reflects the flowers, a truncated bust, and an oblique view of the faux marble tiles in her townhouse in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan. The distinctive flooring appears in some of her most celebrated paintings, including The Turkish Bath (1973; David and Alfred Smart Museum, University of Chicago).
