Still Life with Flowers in a Glass, Jan Brueghel (I), c. 1625 - c. 1630

painting, h 24.5cm × w 19cm. More details

So many flowers in a small glass of water! This must have made an exceedingly lavish impression on a 17th-century viewer. Flowers were expensive at the time; gardens would have had only a few flowers, surrounded by much greenery. Jan Brueghel II was a faithful follower of his father Jan Brueghel I. This sparkling still life is a variant of a painting by his father.
