Catalogue Note

Van Everbroeck seems to have painted elaborate flower garlands like the present with an open center, allowing for another artist to add a religious image or portrait to suit a patron. Here, the stone cartouche with St. Joseph and the Christ Child appears to be the work of another hand. The effect is of an altar adorned with flowers, and the trompe-l'oeil qualities are heightened by Van Everbroeck's inclusion of a beetle and butterfly resting on the stone ledge.
