Huysum, Jan van - Bouquet of Spring Flowers in a Terra Cotta Vase

Fine Art Prints of Distinction


A Museum Quality Print of Bouquet of Spring Flowers in a Terra Cotta Vase by Jan van Huysum. The artist finished this oiled charcoal and watercolor on laid paper sometime during the decade of the 1720s. This was not a study, but a finished work intended to sell to a customer.

Bouquet of Spring Flowers is an exceptionally handsome and lively work by one of the best-known and most important Dutch still-life artists, Jan van Huysum. Lauded for his dramatic use of color, the lushness of his flower arrangements, and the intricate organization of his compositions, Van Huysum was the master who carried the floral still-life tradition into the 18th century, continuing the grand manner of Jan Davidsz de Heem (1606–1683/1684) and Willem van Aelst (1626–1683). Born into an Amsterdam family of flower painters, he was sought out by a wide circle of patrons, including the kings of Poland and Prussia, and his work was highly praised by his contemporaries and by art critics of his time.

Van Huysum was one of the few flower painters who was also a highly skilled draftsman. He produced many drawings and watercolors during his career, not only as compositional studies for his paintings but also as unique works of art. In contrast to the artist’s exquisitely detailed paintings, however, many of his drawings were sketched with great speed, giving the general colors and shapes of the blooms while glossing over specific botanic details.
