This large still life of fruit and flowers spilling from a terracotta vase is painted in bright, light tones against the background of an imposing classical building set in an elegant park.
It is not unusual for a still life artist to date his pictures in two successive years, as here. The artist waited for particular flowers to bloom in their different seasons before painting them. Van Os would have been working on a number of still life paintings simultaneously. This painting is in excellent condition.
