In this painting, Catherine Holmburg presents a modern interpretation of a seventeenth-century still life on a monumental scale. The painting includes classical subjects, including a vase decorated with figures and the head of a classical sculpture, alongside a cascade of flowers. For the Dutch painters of the past, these still lifes of flowers were ruminations on the transience of beauty, here juxtaposed with the long-lasting and static antiques of a bygone culture. 57 x 42 inches, artwork 67.88 x 53.25 inches, frame Signed lower right Framed to conservation standards with a linen liner and a gold gilded moulding
