-The Dutch tradition of [[still life painting]] was largely begun by [[Ambrosius Bosschaert]] (1573–1621), a Flemish-born flower painter who had settled in the north by the beginning of the period, and founded a dynasty. His brother-in-law [[Balthasar van der Ast]] (d. 1657) pioneered still lifes of shells, as well as painting flowers. These early works were relatively brightly lit, with the bouquets of flowers arranged in a relatively simple way. From the mid-century arrangements that can fairly be called Baroque, usually against a dark background, became more popular, exemplified by the works of [[Willem van Aelst]] (1627–1683). + 
 +'''Ambrosius Bosschaert the Elder''' (18 January 1573 – 1621) was a [[still life]] [[Painting|painter]] of the [[Dutch Golden Age]].
