Catalogue Note

This mature work by Rachel Ruysch, the leading female Dutch painter of the latter half of the seventeenth and the first half of the eighteenth centuries, is dated 1745. The unusual inclusion of her age suggests a degree of pride at having still been capable of producing paintings of such quality past the age of eighty. She was much influenced by Jan Davidsz. De Heem and Abraham Mignon, but was very much sought after in her own right for her distinctive and precise style. The motif of a glass jar upon a marble ledge is also found in the artist's signed masterpiece, dated 1710, sold in these Rooms, 3 July 2013, lot 29, for £1,400,000.
