A little bit of LA because LACMA has this in their collection and a big slice of Belgium background to accompany Bosschaerts ( (18 January 1573 – 1621) painting…he was born in Antwerp where he began his training but later joined the Middelburg Guild (where he fled to in the Netherlands as a Protestant refugee ) There he became a Master painter. He specialised in painting precise flower and fruit still-lifes in the manner of botanical illustrations but grouped in compositions which carefully balance form and colour. Flemish Master of Flower paintings. Enjoy.
