Bosschaert's lush bouquets are often flanked by seashells from foreign locales or other costly treasures. In the original painting hung in the gallery, the artist drew inspiration from botanical gardens and from exotic wares imported by the Dutch East India Company.This large still life is painted on smooth copper, enhancing the extraordinary detail of his brushwork.
