Opus 291, “What’s Your Bag? – II”

This work has a lushness springing from the floral efflorescence of saturated tones and pastels, absolutely fitting for a gold-handled (precious) handbag. Its soft white background (and tiny white pearl stickpins) allow the design to achieve coherence. As Cano sought a fitting means to control the presentation, he chose a frame fully carved and gilded, where the textural intensity would go well with the bag’s visual impact. It serves as a skillful variation in a series that makes a familiar subject elite.
