Flower still-lifes were most popular during the 17th century, but remained a ‘classic’ theme in the centuries beyond. This example has been painted by Coenraet Roepel (1678–1748) in 1721 and now part of the collection of the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam [1]. Roepel was born in The Hague, and worked there during his whole life [2].

The inevitable snail is seen in the lower left part of this oil paint, and is the ‘domestic commodity’ Cepaea nemoralis (Linnaeus, 1758).
