Siegfried Bendixen (1786 Kiel - London 1864) came from Kiel and received his first painting lessons from the Italian J. A. Pallivia in Enkendorf before moving to Hamburg. From 1808 he studied in Italy, then in Dresden, Munich and Paris with Jacques-Louis David. In 1813 he returned to Hamburg and opened a painting school. In 1832 he moved to London. His main subjects were portraits, genre scenes, landscapes, religious images and still lifes.
Bendixen studied plants in great detail and the exact reproduction of botany was important to him. The flower still life testifies to its claim: finely worked out plants, such as roses, tulips and hydrangeas, in which every single flower is worked out to the smallest detail. The colorful flowers are presented in a richly decorated rococo jar standing on a marble plate. A butterfly has settled in the foreground.
In addition to private collections, his works can also be found in museums in Hamburg, Kiel and Schleswig-Holstein.
