Here, the artist depicts a harmonious arrangement of flowers, long stalks of wheat, and insects. Despite the realistic detail of this painting, this arrangement could never have really existed, as the flowers shown here bloom at different times of the year. There are more than 30 species of plants and flowers depicted in this painting. Which is your favorite? On view in the West Building, Gallery 50. <a href="" title="" rel="nofollow"></a></p> <p>-----</p> <p><a href="" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Baroque Painting Flemish Painting Flora flowers For Kids Jan Davidsz de Heem Painting Still Life Learning to Look National Gallery of Art, Washington 9c5105f4e7af06fd Tue, 11 Oct 2011 17:52:03 +0000 s-sarraf 8829 at
