These beautiful flower studies by Dutch artist Jan van Huysum took our breath away. The images belong to the British Museum and were shared by one of our favorite blogs, the Snail and the Cyclops. Huysum was born in the Amsterdam in 1682 and became known for his paintings of lavish flower arrangements. We love that these studies make for a simpler version of his typically elaborate still lives. What we would give to have one framed on our wall!
