Biography Johannes (Jan) Bouman
Johannes (Jan) Bouman was born in Strasbourg. Bouman travelled widely and consequently his paintings display varying influences, principally from French and German art.
An identical wicker basket to that of the present picture features in many of Bouman's works. Wicker baskets filled with flowers or fruit were a staple element in the French still-life repertoire, occurring in works by Bouman's French contemporaries such as Louise Moillon and Jacques Linard. Such baskets reveal the influence of Flanders where the independent genre of still-life painting originated at the end of the 16th century.
