The Paradise (1626).

Roelant Savery (or Roeland(t) Maertensz Saverij, or de Savery, or many variants [2]) (1576, Kortrijk - buried February 25, 1639, Utrecht), was a Flanders-born Dutch Golden Age painter.

After his schooling, Savery traveled to Prague around 1604, where he became court painter of the Emperors Rudolf II (1552-1612) and Mathias (1557-1619), who had made their court a center of mannerist art.
