Jan Baptist Morel (attributed to)

Garland of Flowers, 1720-1730

Oil on canvas

435mm x 348mm

A garland of flowers surrounding an oval medallion in grisaille depicting two putti.

Jan Baptist Morel was born in Antwerp in 1662. He was a pupil of the Antwerp still-life painter Nicolaes van Veerendael or Verendael (1640-91), who specialized in flower pieces and garlands. Like his master, Morel also made a career as a flower still-life specialist. In 1689 he married Maria Lomboy. He subsequently moved to Brussels and joined the painters' guild there in 1699. He worked as court painter to Clement of Bavaria, one of the Spanish governors of the Southern Netherlands. In 1712 he returned to Antwerp, but was back in Brussels in 1729, where he died (probably in 1732). Works by Morel can be seen in the museums in Chartres and Lille and in the Wallraf-Richartz-Museum in Cologne.
