    The present composition is related to Ambrosius Bosschaert the Elder's Still Life of Flowers in the Musée du Louvre, Paris. The latter, however, shows a niche that is open to a landscape beyond and the crocus that has fallen on the ledge in the present painting is in the vase in the Louvre picture. The shell in the present painting is also additional and appears to have been taken from Bosschaert's work in the Statens Museum for Kunst, Copenhagen.
