Bouquet of flowers painted on porcelain signed Elisa Bard dated 1850

Bouquet of lilac flowers, roses, parrot tulips, bindweed, peonies, daisies and primroses emerging from a wicker basket placed on an entablature.
Taking up the codes of 17th century Dutch still lifes, the eye is drawn along a large diagonal by three insects: in the upper left, a butterfly, in the center a ladybug and a bee climbing on the entablature.
If cut flowers announce the end of life, short-lived insects agree with this symbolism. If we take the symbolism present in the paintings of the seventeenth century, from the bee we pass visually to "the beast to God" whose reputation is to bring good luck to arrive at the butterfly announcing the resurrection and salvation.
This magnificent composition evokes our passage on earth ending with the hope of eternal rest.
signed Elisa Bard. January 1850
