This drawing was made for a 'Tulip book' painted just after 'Tulipomania' rampaged through Holland. These florilegia were commissioned to allow buyers of bulbs to discern differences between varieties. The beauty of these works ensured that their images would be copied for decades to come by amateur painters and gardeners alike. Claesz is a Dutch master in his own right, with several highly accomplished works to his name. As with most of the great Dutch masters of this period, they were happy to earn a little more money by painting such books. It also allowed them to study in detail subjects that would later be incorporated in their great flower pieces.
