So far, little is known about Jan Pieter Brueghel’s life and work. After training with his father he became a master of the Guild of Saint Luke in Antwerp in 1645/46. He created many flower still lifes and his style was highly influenced by his grandfather Jan Brueghel I and Jan Davidsz. de Heem.

We thank Fred Meijer for inspecting the painting on basis of photographs. He attributes the present work without doubt to Jan Pieter Brueghel and dates it to c. 1660.

The present picture is a beautiful example of the work of Jan Pieter Brueghel and of the collaboration of artists in 17th century Flanders.

Written Communication with Fred Meijer, RKD, The Hague, 6th November 2015. „…the flowers can be attributed without doubt to Jan Pieter Breughel, the son of Jan Breughel the Younger. It was most probably painted before he left Antwerp for Italy around 1663.”
