Rachel Ruysch was a still-life painter of the Dutch
Golden Age, known for her depictions of flowers alongside the creation of her own unique style. Due to her lengthy, successful career which spanned six decades, she has become the most documented woman painter of the Age. Her paintings, slated into the Rococo movement, are characterized by dark backgrounds starkly contrasted by the intense brightness of intricately detailed flowers. Her stylization of the flowers included a delicate droopiness of their petals and sporadic, wild stems and thorns, creating enthralling energy to the works. Ruysch’s flowers– naturalistically portrayed- became her specialization in painting, preceding her earlier works of fungi and other woodland creatures.
