The botanical drawings in the albums were in part made by other artists. For example, De Boodt commissioned 200 drawings from the Delft floral painter Elias Verhulst, who in turn copied some of his images from other artists. This sheet was probably made after a print by court artist Jacob Hoefnagel (1573-c. 1632). It is an attractive, colourful combination of flowers and critters, delicately rendered in watercolour.
