Did you know that in the 17th Century, paintings of flowers were actually cheaper than the real kind? Painters did not paint by looking at a real vase of flowers, but rather from a book which was like a compendium of individual floral paintings. They then pieced their still life from this book. Meeuws' work follows the same principle, as all of the flowers are individually photographed then put together digitally! Fascinating stuff! Read more about it here!
