Bas Meeuws (1974) is a passionate photographer who has given a new twist to the traditional Dutch still life with flowers. Meeuws does not paint his flowers with a brush and oil paints, as his famous predecessors from the 17th century did. His images come from a digital reflex camera.
Tulip mania or tulipomania was a period in the Dutch Golden Age during which contract prices for bulbs of the recently introduced tulip reached extraordinarily high levels and then suddenly collapsed. At the peak of tulip mania, some single tulip bulbs sold for more than 10 times the annual income of a skilled craftsman.
Subtle pink hues like Cabbage Rose and Dutch Tulip are transformed when paired with the light blue green of Dark Moon and Flower Jar. Explore the rest of the Magnolia Home by Joanna GainesTM paint collection to find limitless color palettes that are filled with DIY design inspiration.
