  1. Great picture.

  2. Chicory

    Interesting. I had never heard of Kermes in English, but in German there is a Kirmes, which evolved over time from Kirchenmesse. I looked up Kermes and found that the meaning is the same, but is attributed to the Dutch with the German influence ignored.

    Great painting
