Like no other painter, Jan Davidsz de Heem left his stamp on Dutch and Flemish still life painting. The Schwerin festoon is a show piece of his mastery of colour perspective by arranging light and warm colours to the foreground. De Heem also emphasizes the movement of the heavy blossoms. With stems and grass blades he gives additional accents over the whole composition while numerous animals and other detail engage the viewer into close inspection.
