Nature morte aux gants also demonstrates the influence of the Fauves on his compositions. Delaunay had freed his palette from the colors of the natural world, and in this picture his color choices are largely a mode of unmitigated expression rather than a vehicle for naturalistic representation. In his monograph on the artist, Gustav Vriesen observes that "the short blunt Neo-impressionist line no longer determines the structure but serves instead to decorate the picture in accordance with a new feeling for ornament." Discussing the present composition, he continues: "Thus, in Still Life with Gloves, the ornamental design of the rug is 'stitched' across the entire picture surface. A persian faience vase adds further to the Oriental atmosphere" (G. Vriesen, op. cit., p. 20).
