Still Life of a Rose Bush near a Pond

A flowering rose bush hangs over the water, the flowers reflect and some leaves just touch the water. Through a view on the right, we look past farms in the distance. This painting is a fine example of the artist Gerardina Jacoba van de Sande Bakhuyzen. This 19th century painter came from an artistic family, both her father and brother were a painter. She lived all her life at the same address in The Hague, the Nieuwe Haven. In the summer she went to Rolde near Assen, where she also painted. She remained unmarried.
She regularly submitted work to the exhibitions of Living Masters held during the nineteenth century. Those who read the titles of Gerardina’s paintings will see next to fruits, a dune bouquette and a vase with flowers, mainly roses as a title and then in all sorts of variations from bush to bouquet to vase with roses.
Already in 1850 she won the first prize with a flower painting at an exhibition of the Groningen Academy Minerva. According to the jury report, her flower arrangement received general approval "as being processed with care and diligence, graceful and beautiful of ordinance". Although flowers were her main theme, she also painted some landscapes.

Gerardina died in The Hague in 1895. At her funeral the painters spoke Hendrik Willem Mesdag and Jozef Israëls
