Giovanni Stanchi (Rome 1608-circa 1673)
An iris, a peony, love-in-a-mist, tulips, pinks and other flowers in a silver urn
inscribed '59 F:B:S: Wilder' (on the reverse)
oil on canvas
67.7 x 50cm (26 5/8 x 19 11/16in).

Footnotes

  • The inscription on the reverse, presumably transcribed from an earlier canvas, may refer to Francis Boyle Shannon Wilder (born 1785) of Busbridge Hall, near Godalming, Surrey.

    The identical silver urn appears in other compositions by Giovanni Stanchi, as can be seen in the group of four flower still lifes illustrated in L. Ravelli, Stanchi dei Fiori (Bergamo, 2005), nos. 10-13, p. 53. He also repeated the same flowers in other compositions (see op cit. no. 13, p. 53).
