Wallpaper Description:
Jan van Kessel was born in Antwerp in the spring of 1626 to the portrait painter Hiëronymous van Kessel and Paschasia Brueghel, daughter of his father’s collaborator Jan Brueghel the Elder. He trained as a flower painter during the 1630s and 1640s and, although he was apprenticed to Simon de Vos in 1634-35, the style of his painting has led many to believe that he must also have trained in the studio of his uncle, Jan Brueghel the Younger. Around 1644-45 van Kessel was registered as a Blomschilder in the books of the Guild of St. Luke. He was a very versatile and highly original painter who produced floral bouquets and fruit still lifes as well as animal paintings together with cartoons for tapestries, in particular the flower borders.
