Still life with flowers in a glass vase
Rachel Ruysch (1690 - 1720)
Rachel Ruysch was the daughter of the professor of botany Frederik Ruysch. Her talent for painting was recognized early on and she developed into a famous painter of flower still lifes. She was the mother of ten children, but nevertheless made painting her profession. Her work was admired at the courts of The Hague and Germany, and the Elector Palatinate, a German principality, appointed her court painter.
