Lilies and Thornless Roses in a Glass Vase, ca. 1625. Oil on canvas, 75 x 60 cm. Collection Lingenauber, Monaco.
An unusual still life, imbued with mysticism. A vase of roses and lilies rests on a stone ledge, behind which grow rosebushes. According to several art historians and experts — who discuss this work at http://collection-lingenauber.org/files/Venerazione_Mariana.pdf — the roses and lilies are meant as symbols of the Virgin Mary, but the exact meaning of the particular, distinctive arrangement is unclear.
