Bosschaert’s depiction is accurate in every detail and gives the impression of a brilliant and convincing bouquet arranged in a glass vase. However, taken as a whole, the painting is, of course

In a letter written in the 1620s, she identified the otherwise unknown Giacomo Rogni as her teacher. The theory that she studied miniature painting in Florence with Jacopo Ligozzi is no longer accepted, although she must have seen his exquisite nature studies when she was later at the Medici court.
