The Frick’s new exhibition “Vermeer, Rembrandt, and Hals: Masterpieces of Dutch Painting from the Mauritshuis” features an enlivened version of Ambrosius Bosschaert’s Vase with Flowers in a Window.

Artists Rob and Nick Carter created the work by creating a time lapse-like video loop version of the work; complete with changing light, weather fluctuations, and life-like snail exploring the space.

If only more works actively called on the viewer to look slowly and repeatedly!
