biography of 'Catharina' Isabella Kiers

Catharina Kiers inherited her painting talent from both parents: Petrus Kiers and Elisabeth Alida Haanen. She eventually became a 'flower painter' and devoted herself to a genre largely practiced by women in the 19th century. Her still lifes consist of nonchalantly arranged bouquets, sometimes laid out on a table or on the forest floor. Because it was important that the flowers looked natural, faded specimens or a withered leaf were also given a place in the composition. Catharina painted largely for pleasure, although she regularly took part in exhibitions
