    Galle was known to have been influenced by Daniel Seghers, but, unlike Seghers, who generally bathed his flowers in full light, Galle's works more typically employed an animated play of light and shade. The present work also shows the salmon-pink tonalities that he favoured. About 15 signed and dated paintings executed between 1643 and 1680 are known.
