This painting forms part of a small, striking collection of similar works we have for sale depicting flowers, butterflies and insects such as locust and moth. Dating from the early to mid-19th century, the paintings have strong visual appeal, painted in bold colours with striking crispness and elements of fine detailing such as touches of gold paint. At the same time, they show a popular interest in naturalism, the artist noting the Latin name of the specific insect species in some cases.
