The White Azalea is typical of Anne Redpath's work during the 1950s. The palette is largely comprised of subtle and chalky tones of white and grey punctuated with more saturated flashes of orange and yellow. The steeply angled perspective of the work, in which the viewer looks down upon Redpath's sculptural arrangement of objects, reveals the influence of Japanese paintings and printmaking: examples of which the artist's son David recalls decorating his mother's studio.

Writing in 1965 Terrence Mullany commented on Redpath's unique palette and handling of colour and tone: 'pinks and greys, mauve and lilacs are colours which she commands. Equally remarkable is Anne Redpath's use of white. I have now for several years lived with a large still-life by her which is in effect a study in white. It is a picture of beauty; handled with boldness, indeed bravura.' (T. Mullany, Anne Redpath Memorial Exhibition, exh.cat, 1965, p.3). These qualities could as easily be applied to the present work which is a magnificent example of Redpath's mastery of the still life.
