This was painted by Ambrosius Bosschaert the Elder, who was a still life painter of the Dutch Golden Age. He was born in Belgium and died in The Netherlands. I chose this painting because the colors really stuck out to me and it wasn't as busy as all his other paintings. I didn't like that his other paintings had so much going on and so many different colors and flowers. I like that this one is a lot simpler and it is easy to see the flowers.
