How does Williams set the tone of the scene through the use of the Van Gogh painting?
It uses the primary colors to draw attention to the primary conflict over the radio.
It has a strong sensory appeal - bold and dominant, like Stanley, foreshadowing the violence.
Paintings are cultured much like Blanche and this painting depicts her fragile mind.
It perfectly parallels the two male focused games: billiards and poker.
The painting is masculine and the scene is dominated by men.
