Still Life with Flowers in a Greek Vase: Allegory of Spring, Georgius Jacobus Johannes van Os, 1817

olieverf op doek, h 149cm × w 116cm. More details

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.
