In memoriam: Jan Brueghel the Elder


1568 – 13 January 1625

Originally shared by The National Gallery

Jan Brueghel the Elder died #OnThisDay in 1625. He was one of the most celebrated flower painters of his age. From 1605 onwards, his floral still lifes brought new complexity and depth to the emerging genre: his first painting of this type included 72 varieties of spring and summer flowers. This composition, while not quite so extravagant, is typically bright and dense: http://bit.ly/2fa1DvK
