Flower Still Life

Ambrosius Bosschaert The Elder, 1614

A pink carnation, a white rose, and a yellow tulip with red stripes lie in front of a basket with flowers, that would not bloom together: roses, forget-me-nots, lilies-of-the-valley, a cyclamen, a violet, a hyacinth, and tulips. Insects, short-lived like flowers, remind of the brevity of life and the transience of its beauty. (
