Still Life with Flowers in a Greek Vase: Allegory of Spring, Georgius Jacobus Johannes van Os, 1817
Van Os spent his career mainly in Paris, where he painted porcelain for the famous Sèvres factory. At the same time, he created a furore with magnificently painted floral still lifes incorporating antique art objects. These two paintings probably belong to a series of the Four Seasons. In this painting of Spring, the flowers are arranged in a Greek vase.
