Balthasar van der Ast

Balthasar van der Ast

Dutch Golden Age painter Balthasar van der Ast specialized in still lifes of flowers, fruits, and shells, simultaneously featuring insects and lizards. His is considered a pioneer of the niche genre of shell art. Born in Middelburg, Balthasar was orphaned at a young age and was taken in by his older sister, Maria, and her husband, a still-life painter. Balthasar’s uncle had a huge impact on his development as a painter. His early style manifested in a softer, more atmospheric manner, reminiscent of his uncle’s works. Balthasar later joined an artists’ guild which would allow him to fully evolve his style and technique into a completely unique style that would gain him a moderate amount of recognition.
