Description

Unique coasters make ideal housewarming gifts.

These sumptuous lacquer coasters celebrate an ambitious arrangement by the remarkable Clara Peeters (Flemish, 1587–after 1636). A Bouquet of Flowers (ca. 1612), housed at The Met, showcases the artist's keen eye for detail—in the way of reflective dewdrops, little insect bites, and drooping petals evocative of transience and decay—and reveals the connection between botanical illustration and still-life painting, both of which became popular during the Scientific Revolution. Peeters was a founding figure in the history of the European still life, an especially attractive genre to women artists, who weren't permitted to study nude models.
