A Bowl of Flowers

The artist is recorded only by her signature on this work. She is thought to have been French and to have lived in the 17th century.

The flowers depicted include a yellow narcissus and, near the centre, 'primula auricula'. The large white flower hanging over the front of the terracotta pot may be 'viburnum lantana'.
