A Vase of Flowers

Beert the Elder, Osias

A Vase of Flowers
4 0 c m
actual image size: 22cm x 29cm


One of a number of works traditionally attributed to Osias Beerts which is too uneven in execution and too coarse in parts to be autograph. Otherwise, the motif of a bunch of fairly large blooms, filling the picture plane, the lighting and the choice of flowers (tulips, iris, crown imperial lily, love-in-a-mist, crocus, pansy, jonquil, snowdrop, roses, forget-me-not and cyclamen) is typical of Beert and some parts, notably the tulips, are quite close to his manner. It is generally believed to date from about 1616.
