Provenance: coll. Titia van Gelder.
Literature: Vermeld in de 'Werk-catalogus 1883-1930' (als 'Platte schotel met lichte rozen'), samengesteld door Anna Voerman-Verkade, juli 1889 (in copie aanwezig op het R.K.D., Den Haag); vgl.: 'Anna Wagner, 'Jan Voerman, IJsselschilder', Zwolle 1997, afb. pag. 44.

Jan Voerman was a farmer's son, friends at a young age with the painter Willem Tholen. Together they received their first painting lessons and visited the Rijksacademie in Amsterdam. Then Voerman painted landscapes, genre paintings, flower still lifes and cityscapes. His work changed when he came to live in 1896 on the Geldersedijk in Hattem, from where he had a wonderful view of the floodplains of the IJssel, where hundreds of cows grazed. From that time on, he mainly painted IJssel views, in refined, pale colors under high cloudy skies. Voerman painted a lot of watercolors and tried to transfer the transparency of this technique to oil paint.
