Brueghel the Elder and Van Balen
The picture is another example of cooperative work between the most outstanding Flemish painter of flowers Jan Brueghel the Elder and his friend Hendrik van Balen, famous Antwerp artist, known for his small, cabinet pictures. The minute details of landscape and flowers are typical of Brueghel and the rounded figures showing Rubens influence are typical of van Balen.
