Dutch Golden Age flower painting
This is a Dutch Golden Age flower painted by Ambrosius Bosschaert. He was a flower painter who had settled in the North by the beginning of the period. Many of his flower paintings are called baroque which means its usually against a dark background. I like how detailed every petal is with the shadowing. I researched on the style of his paintings and it said that they were painted symmetrically and with scientific accuracy in small dimensions and normally on copper. They also provided symbolic and religious meanings. I really liked all his paintings and it seemed like his used white, orange, red and purple paint. Overall, they're great.
