This delicately painted still life in a garden is a good example of the new fashions introduced into Netherlandish paintings in the years around 1700. The precise barriers between the genres of still life and landscape were beginning to break down and patrons were looking for lively combinations of both. While this introduced a change in the decorative appeal of painting, it also called for a more impressive demonstration of the artist's skill and ingenuity. The way all the elements of this composition are rendered is also evidence of the increasing emphasis on demonstrations of technical excellence. (Wright, 2002, p. 44)
