Jan van Os: 'Fruit, Flowers and a Fish'

Explore the paintings

Among the fruit are grapes, melons, peaches, plums, a pineapple and a pomegranate; the principal flowers are roses and hollyhocks. Unlike the other flower still lifes in the National Gallery's Collection, Jan van Os's paintings, with their crowded compositions, lighter colours and light backgrounds, alluding to classical architecture and garden settings, reflect 18th-century taste.
