Floris van Dyck

Floris van Dyck was one of the most important pioneers of so-called ‘display piece’ still lifes. His works are very rare but were highly influential. Almost all his compositions centre on a stack of cheeses on a plate seen from a high viewpoint so that the various elements of the composition are seen to their best advantage.
