Over 370 years ago was the 1st recorded economic bubble and crash over the speculation of tulip bulbs. At its peak they sold for the price of a house. The Still Life genre is romantically about fragile life and futile materialism that helped disguise the display of wealth accrued from colonisation, plantations and slavery.
