What strikes us is the structure of the painting together with the lively colors Van Dijck used. His skill to make the bouquet alive is astonishing. Flower still life is a known genre to improve skills and to show that you master the technique and the composition of colours. Van Dijck more or less used the impasto technique with thick layers of paint.

Alfons van Dijck (1894-1979) was born and raised in Antwerp and was called the 'Veerse Fleming'. He attended the Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp, first the drawing class and then the painting class of Baron Isidoor Opsomer.With the outbreak of the First World War, he left The Hague, Amsterdam and Edam to eventually settle in Veere together with Dick Koets. His oeuvre consists of landscapes, cityscapes, fishermen's portraits and still lives in a naturalistic style. He was a painter, draftsman, watercolorist and wood engraver. His work is characterized by a beautiful warm use of color. In the early 1920s he was influenced by the neo-impressionism of Jan Toorop, whom he must have met. In 2003, the Museum 'De Schotse huizen' in Veere organized an exhibition about Van Dijck.
