Signed and Dated 'Bo. van Winghen fe 1670'


Bartholomeus van Winghen is a painter whose only known oeuvre includes three signed and dated paintings from 1664 (German private collection), 1667 (formerly with Gallery Sanct Lucas in 1964) and a garland from 1669 (Berkeley Castle, Glos). From the Southern Netherlands and most likely Antwerp, he was clearly heavily influenced by Nicoales van Verendael. The crisp treatment of petals, especially the roses and carnations, as well as the glistening dew drops, all point to the Antwerp masters artistic impact on van Winghen.

This painting is an exciting addition to the artist's known oeuvre and further enhances our view of him and his growing reputation as a still life painter of flowers.
