SNAILS IN PARADISE
Bollongier is the leading painter of flower bouquets of the golden age. Impressive is the way he uses the colors. And again and again, it is the tulip that stands out from the sea of flowers. Looking closely at his compositions, the bizarre little creatures stand out like snails or lizards eagerly looking up at the flowers.
