Jan Davidsz de Heem was born in Utrecht and first studied under his father David de Heem the Elder, and later under Balthasar van der Ast. His talent for creating meticulous still life paintings and portraits garnered him a sound reputation that commanded the highest prices for his paintings. Several of his paintings were actually works by his sons, or apprentices. He finished many paintings and signed them as his own.

Note the striations of the centerpiece tulip and its juxtaposition to a midnight bearded iris and the masterful play of light in this still life bouquet. DLA-034 Mauritshuis Tulip Pillow
