Brilliance in Bloom – the Genius of Jan Brueghel

London | July 2016

Jan Brueghel the Elder was a pioneer of floral still-lifes in the first decade of the 17th Century. George Gordon, Co-Chairman Sotheby’s Worldwide Old Master Paintings, explains how the energy fizzing through 'Still Life of Flowers in a Stoneware Vase' defines Brueghel’s genius. The work is a star of Sotheby’s Old Master Paintings Evening Sale on 6 July 2016 in London.
