Flower still life

Rachel Ruysch was born in Hague, Netherlands in 1664.  Rachel was born into a wealthy and prominent Dutch Artists family. When Rachel was fifteen years old, she started learning techniques with Van Aelst. During this period, Rachel started producing various styles of still life paintings mostly flowers and woodlands paintings. This specific painting by Rachel is call Flower Still life, created in 1704, on an oil canvas. What caught my eye from this painting was the dark background that makes the flower colors more rich and vibrate. The lighting technique is what makes this painting,also the details on this is outstanding,
