I chose this painting by Georgius Jacobus Johannes van Os because of the contrast of colors and how well they work together. The background brings out the colors that are in the flowers and doesn't make the flowers look dull. The arrangement of the flowers isn't neat and tidy. There are some flowers that are withering /drooping and flowers that still look vibrant or lively. Johannes van Os excelled at painting elegant flowers composition. Flowers the he painted were peonies, tulips, african marigold, rhododendron and tee-tree were flowers known in the Netherlands, these flowers were highly coveted and were considered luxury items at that time.
