'Still Life' by Cornelis de Heem Canvas Art Print
This gallery-wrapped still life print on canvas is a reproduction of Cornelis de Heem's "Banquet Still Life." The artist uses vibrant colors and tremendous skill to present us with a beautiful bouquet. Being a Dutch painter, de Heem includes many flowers that were popular in that region, particularly, the tulip, which was considered to be a sign of wealth and affluence. De Heem was primarily a still life painter, associated with the Flemish Baroque period, as well as the Dutch Golden Age of painting. He combines great drawing skills with vibrant colors and composes his paintings on dark backgrounds for stronger contrast.
