Peeters Bouquet of Flowers Crossbody Phone Purse

Regular price $90.00

This eye-catching phone purse celebrates an ambitious arrangement painted by the remarkable Clara Peeters (Flemish, ca. 1587–after 1636). A Bouquet of Flowers (ca. 1612), housed at The Met, showcases the artist's keen eye for detail—in the way of reflective dewdrops, little insect bites, and drooping petals evocative of transience and decay—and reveals the close connection between botanical illustration and still-life painting, both of which became popular during the Scientific Revolution. Peeters was a founding figure in the history of European still-life painting, an especially attractive genre to women, who weren't permitted to study nude models.
