'A Forest Floor Still Life of Flowers'

Collection | Ashmolean Museum
Artist | Rachel Ruysch


Intricate still-life painting of flowers by Rachel Ruysch, the best reported female painter of the Dutch Golden Age. This dark floral artwork fits beautifully in the Rococo movement with its playful compositions and brilliant colours. The dark background of her still lifes followed the trend of the late 17th century.

Ruysch painted a long succession of flower paintings, several fruit pieces and a number of ‘forest floors’, this is a relatively early example from the series.
