The paper, which plays a harmonious role as background throughout the composition, was glued to the panel afterwards, lending its glossy texture to the painting. No artist has practised this genre with more brio. Frits Van den Berghe, who was a kind of alchemist, found here exactly the medium for his wonderful series of flower arrangements, strange bouquets of plants that he himself invented and later developed into masterpieces.
