This exuberant bouquet may look natural, but tulips, anemones, roses and carnations do not all bloom at the same time. Hans Bollongier nevertheless
managed to assemble a balanced composition. The still life was painted shortly after the Dutch stock market crashed in 1637, when many people went
bankrupt due to the speculation in tulip bulbs. This festive bouquet may thus refer to the transience of earthly matters.Produced on a stretched
canvas expertly crafted in-house in the UK with the latest technology and skilled craftsmen. This specialised process creates a unique and high quality
picture that captures all the colour, craquelure, texture and character of an original painting.
