Still Life with Flowers, Balthasar van der Ast, c. 1625 - c. 1630

oil on panel, h 59cm × w 43cm More details

A magnificent bouquet of tulips, roses, iris, columbine and gillyflowers is set in a ribbed glass vase. The artist first made a detailed drawing on the prepared panel before beginning to paint. In the intervening centuries, some of the pigments, primarily the lighter colours, have become transparent, allowing the underdrawing to show through.

On display in room 2.6
