Osias Beert - Dutch Artist From Art History

Historical Artist - Osias Beert (1580 - 1624)

Osias Beert was a recognized still life and flower painter who joined the Antwerp painter’s guild in 1602. While pursuing a career in the arts, he also worked as a cork merchant. Beert is praised for his oyster paintings, which display a mastery over the color and texture of his subject.

Beerts's floral paintings, often showing a vase of flowers in a shallow niche, are similar to the works of Ambrosius Bosschaert. His breakfast pieces, frequently known by their Dutch name ontbijtjes ("little breakfasts"), are seen from a high angle with forced perspective, as was common in both Flemish and Dutch still life painting in the early years of the seventeenth century.
