Dutch, 17th – 18th century, male.

Painter. Still-lifes.

[not available online]S. Adriaen Coorte was active in Middelburg 1685-1723; in Delft 1694. His Vanitas of 1688 is recorded. He painted nothing but still-lifes reminiscent of the work of Ambrosius Bosschaert. His depictions of seashells echo the great collections made at that time, in which shells symbolise vice, through a link with the 16th century Emblemata.
