Jan Davidz de Heem - Vase of Flowers @ the Fitzwilliam Museum Cambridge.... this is an example of Dutch/Flemish flower painting, part of a trend for vivid, and often allegorical, still life painting in the 17th and 18th centuries. Apparently de Heem's work epitomises the genre. I would say more, but my Wikipedia-tolerance is running low.
