We are grateful to Fred Meijer for confirming the attribution.

The present still life of a tulip, lily, roses and forget-me-nots, all vibrantly arranged in a glasss vase upon a stone ledge, is a typically refined work from the oeuvre of Jan Van Kessel. The accuracy of the depiction of the butterfly and the dragonfly shown alighting on the bouquet, with the snail beneath, along with carefully registered forms of flowers, are testament to the exquisite studies of nature for which Van Kessel was celebrated by his contemporaries.
