Artist's description:

This is one of the paintings in my series showing historical Dutch heritage tulips.

Supplied by the Hortus Bulborum foundation in Holland which propagates heritage tulips, I planted this Duc van Tol bulb in my garden in October 2017 and it grew into a beautiful tulip early in May this year. The blooms have a crown-like shape with pointed petals and are beautifully deep crimson coloured.

This Duc van Tol Max Cramoisi tulip was introduced in Holland in 1700. The Dutch were (and we are) still fond of tulips at this time, half a century after the tulpenmanie/tulipmania financial crash in the 1630s. At the height of the tulpenmanie a single bulb was traded for enormous sums, such as a canal house in the city. [Wikipedia: a period in the Dutch Golden Age during which contract prices for some bulbs of the recently introduced and fashionable tulip reached extraordinarily high levels and then dramatically collapsed in February 1637].

The tulip is painted on wood using classical technique common in 17th Century Holland. As with the other paintings in this series, I celebrate the cultural heritage of the tulip - after all we all went crazy for tulips in 17th century Holland.

The frame is matt black lacquered wood.
This painting would look great in a living room, bedroom, library or hallway. It can be paired with my other historical tulip paintings (see picture & my other listings).
