Previously attributed to style of Monnoyer, Jean-Baptiste (French painter and etcher, 1636-1699, active in Paris and London)
Date 1663 (dated)
Description A vase of flowers stands on a shelf with a few flowers at the base. Although the painting is not in very good condition, its quality seems to be good enough to attribute it to the studio of Monnoyer rather than to an artist working in his style. Jean-Baptiste Monnoyer was a Franco-Flemish painter who specialised in flower pieces. He was attached to the Gobelins and the Beauvais tapestry workshops, where he produced cartoons of fruit and flowers for the tapestry-weavers. He was called ‘Baptiste' and that is how he signed his works.
