Returning the de Heem to Dyrham Park

Cornelis de Heem’s Still Life of Flowers and Fruit Arranged on a Stone Plinth in a Garden dates from the mid-1680s. It depicts a wide variety of flowers, food and fruit and is an exceptional example of de Heem’s work – it is highly detailed and decoratively coloured. The painting remained at Dyrham Park until 1956 when the family sold it at auction. Now, nearly sixty years later, it has been returned to its home at Dyrham.
