More information

No matter how cleverly Bosschaert painted the individual blooms on this little panel, the combination is completely fictitious. With no industrial-scale glasshouses or air transport, you would never get roses and tulips together in the 17th century, except in a sketchbook or your imagination. So Bosschaert repeated his flowers more than once in a basket or bouquet. That is what his drawings were for.
