Still Life with Flowers and Fruit, Jan van Huysum, c. 1728

Still Life with Flowers and Fruit, Jan van Huysum, c. 1728

oil on panel, h 66.5cm × w 52cm. More details

As his career progressed, Van Huysum produced floral still lifes that were increasingly exuberant. His palette became lighter and more transparent and he set his still lifes against a park-like background. Here the fruit, grapevine and hollyhocks are arranged so loosely and precariously that they risk tumbling from the marble plinth.
