Dr. Fred G. Meijer will speak about the rise and shine of still-life painting, addressing the various subject categories and approaches of the wide array of artists active during the period. From the moralist early paintings by an artist like Hieronymus Francken, the poetry of Clara Peeters, the vigour of Frans Snijders, to the elegant virtuosity of Jan Davidsz. de Heem. How did these artists react to each other's work and how did they inspire a following, sometimes into succeeding centuries.
