The Bourbon dynasty was a branch of the Capetian dynasty. She descends from Robert de Clermont, sixth son of King Saint Louis, who married in 1272 Béatrix de Bourbon, heiress of the lordship of Bourbon-Archambault (Allier). The Capetian dynasty of Bourbon or Capetian House of Bourbon or the Bourbons is a family and dynasty that ruled France and Navarre from 1589 to 1789 and again from 1815 to 1848. Bourbons, of the French branch, also ruled Spain from 1701 to 1808, then from 1814 to 1931 and since 1975. Bourbons from the Spanish branch ruled Naples from 1759 to 1860, Parma from 1748 to 1802 and from 1848 to 1859. A still life is, as the name suggests, a representation of a still piece from everyday life. Flower still lifes were very popular. In the beginning, mostly individual flowers were painted, but soon these became lush and asymmetrical bouquets. For example, more attention was paid to the incidence of light and the effect of depth. These still lifes were expensive, because flowers were rare at that time and there was a lot of technique involved in painting flower still lifes. Painters who were technical and skilled enough to realistically depict the flowers were praised throughout Europe. On display is a beautiful rectangular painting on canvas with the subject of a nature morte flower still life with a bouquet of flowers in a copper vase with neoclassical features such as a winged swan. It is an ode to Creation. Twenty-two different flowers (especially roses) with foliage are hand-painted in a fresh-looking and multi-coloured way. At the bottom right, two apples with leaves are also very nicely painted. In the bottom right corner, the name Desormeaux in brown color has been manually applied. Unfortunately, no information can be found about this painter, French school. The canvas has a 19th century craquelure. The painting has its original gilded oak deep frame. This is modeled by hand with, among other things, a frieze in relief of connecting leaves, a pearl border and an arabesque-like manually carved outer border. This passes through a concave partition into the rear frame, which has a frieze of hand-carved semicircular elements. The frame is in very good condition, as is its gilding. At the back, the canvas itself has a more recent frame and is apparently doubled. This painting probably dates from the first half of the 19th century. It was apparently auctioned in Paris in 1898 for 410 francs.
 
Condition: good, restoration may make the colors stand out even better.
