MANNER OF VAN HUYSUM

Jacob van Huysum was born in Amsterdam circa 1687 and became an important Northern Netherlandish botanical painter. Both his father, Justus van Huysum (1659 -1716), and his brother, Jan van Huysum (1682–1749), were celebrated flower painters and his own style of painting was very close to that of his brother. His approach to floral illustration, while preserving botanical accuracy, captured a very painterly aspect of his subjects.

This painting is very close to the work of Van Huysum and it does have an old signature. However, we feel in consultation with other specialists, that this work is not by Jacob van Huysum, but a good contemporary follower.
