Osias Beert Famous Paintings

Osias Beert was a Flemish Baroque painter. He was specially oriented towards ‘flowers’ and ‘breakfast’ as his main topics in his art works. Still life was his area of specialization.

Very often one could see his paintings where he featured a vase of flowers in a limited space. When painting themes concerning breakfast his high angled subjects and coercive perspective were evident. He was in Antwerp nearly al his life. His pictures of tables where basketfuls of cherries or other fruis were stacked were recognizable at once. Experts say these were the precusors to the Dutch style called ‘breakfast’.

Osias Beert's still life paintings were full of symbols difficult to comprehend to modern folk. Only eight of his pictures remain now. His still life picture “Cherries & Strawberries in Porcelain bowls” is explained by historians as “forces of good and evil fighting for man’s soul.

Human soul is cherries and strawberries considered fruits of paradise. Butterfly represents salvation and resurrection. Dragon fly which is a subspecies of the common fly is creature of the devil.
