Flowers in a Vase

Paulus Theodorus van Brussel


1792, oil on mahogany.


Among the flowers are tulips, poppies, narcissi and peonies, and there are roses lying on the ledge. Ghostly trees can just be made out in the background. This picture is typical of still lifes of this period and, in contrast to still lifes of the 17th century, the background is light and the trees suggest a garden setting.


The National Gallery, founded in 1824, is situated in Trafalgar Square London. The entire collection of over 2,300 paintings dating from mid-13th century to 1900 belongs to the nation.
