Weenix lived for most of his career in Amsterdam where he was chiefly known for his hunting pieces. Flowers often appear in his female portraits and in his paintings of game but still-life paintings of flowers by him are rare. The withered leaves do not appear in his work before the 1670s but are common in his later work. A date of about 1680 is suggested by the dark background, the form of the ledge and by the out of doors setting in which Weenix placed all his still lifes after c.1680.
