#Rijksmuseumfromhome: Jane about nature’s little jokes

Head of the Print Room Jane Turner has a house in England with a beautiful garden. In the new episode of #Rijksmuseumfromhome 🏠 she shows us the snapdragon plant that grows there. She saw the plant on a print made by draughtsman Anselmus Boëtius de Boodt at the end of the 16th century and was intrigued by the little skulls on the drawing. 💀
