A still life of the Dutch Golden Age by the virtuoso flower painter Ambrosius Bosschaert. At about the age of 16 his family, threatened by religious persecution, moved to Middleburg; a trading center in Zeeland celebrated for its lavish botanical gardens, where he was able to sketch rare and exotic flowers from around the world. Amid a booming art market and the coinciding tulip mania, he painted joyful bouquets of flowers wherein every specimen was developed with the same care and attention as the face of a portrait. His arrangements often combined flowers from different seasons and included elements symbolic of the transience of life. By his death in 1621 his reputation had grown to such proportions that he was able to sell a single flower portrait for one thousand gilders. This, one of his final paintings, bears the inscription: "This is the angelic hand of the great painter of Flora, Ambrosius, renowned even to the banks of the Moré."
