MONNOYER, Jean-Baptiste
(b. 1636, Lille, d. 1699, London)

Still-Life of Flowers

Oil on canvas, 151 x 125 cm
Private collection

This grand and sumptuously painted still-life depicts flowers in a bronze vase, with fruits, before a colonnade. It is an example of the elegant decorative style that Monnoyer developed from the more intimate manner of his predecessors.
