Flowers in a Glass Vase (1667) is the earliest-known signed work by the Dutch artist Jacob van Walscapelle. This striking still life explores the theme of transience, depicting a bouquet of fast-fading flowers. Ironically, the beauty of the painting itself had started to fade, as it had not been treated since it arrived at the V&A in 1900. A fascinating video of its transformation.
