Metropolitan Museum of Art, Boxed Set of Midnight Garden Notecards
These "Midnight Garden" notecards from The Metropolitan Museum of Art nod to the often overlooked genre of still-life painting.
About the Paintings on the Notecards
Gathered together are details from five masterpieces in The Met collection, including three recent and important acquisitions of paintings by female artists. A Bouquet of Flowers (ca. 1612) by Clara Peeters (Flemish, ca. 1587–after 1636) as well as Flowers in a Grotesque Vase (ca. 1635) and Fruit and Flowers (ca. 1639), both by Orsola Maddalena Caccia (Italian, 1596–1676), join works by Margareta Haverman (Dutch, 1693–1722 or later) and Severin Roesen (American, b. Prussia, 1816–72?) to call attention to this virtuosic tradition.
