Rachel Ruysch - Festoon with Flowers and Fruit
As a fourteen year old, Rachel was admitted to the workshop of a well-known still life painter Willem van Aelst. This painting signed and dated with a calligraphy lettering originates from the time when the painter was eighteen. She had a real sense for arranging motives, technical perfection and a sense for detail, which brought her many buyers and admirers. Even today her works are sought after and sold for high prices in the art market.
