Alfred Rouby (1849-1909) was a specialist and is predominantly known for his gorgeous still lifes, which tend to feature flowers and stoneware. Most of these include at least one flower laid in the foreground - as if fallen from the bouquet. Perhaps a symbolic reference to the passing of time.
Rouby lived in Paris and trained under Pierre-Marie Beyle (1837-1902).
