Vincent van Gogh: Still Life with Scabiosa and Ranunculus
John Constable: The Hay Wain (1821). Although it is hard to see on reproductions, in the original (which can be seen the National Gallery in London), flowering Ranunculus can be seen in the water.
Marinus A. Koekkoek (1930). 'In sloot en plas' (in ditch and pond) (left) and 'In de Weide' (In the Meadow) (right). These are part of a series of watercolours made for educational purposes in Dutch primary schools. The Ranunculus in both cases is most likely R. peltatus. More information (in Dutch) here.
