Besides the Netherlands, the genre of still-life appeared all over Europe, flourishing in Italy, France and Spain. In France, taking his inspiration from Dutch and Flemish still-life painting, Jacques Linard specialized in still-lifes of flowers. The flower still-life in the Thyssen-Bornemisza collection reflects his mature style.
