Rose Bush in flower

1680 - 1700. Oil on canvas.
Room 019

In contrast to the floral compositions habitual in Baroque painting and in Caffi’s own work, this canvas shows different plants growing directly from the ground with the evident aim of conveying spontaneity. The flowering rose bush and cluster of tulips also contribute to this close-up vision of the natural world, differing from other works by the artist, which depict invented species.
