Still Life, 1624, Roelant Savery

Still life (130x80cm, 1624). The largest painting he ever made, with 44 different species of animals and 63 species of flower.

Savery primarily painted landscapes in the Flemish tradition of Gillis van Coninxloo, often embellished with many meticulously painted animals and plants, regularly with a mythological or biblical theme as background. He also painted multiple flower still lifes; bouquets in stone niches, sometimes with lizards such as Flowers with Two Lizards, insects or fallen petals and regarded as his best work.
