The Dutch painter Jan van Huysum comes from a well-known family of artists. His grandfather Jan Huysum I was also a painter and also decorated door frames and vases. His father Justus van Huysum, his brother Jacob were still life and landscape painters. His younger brother Justus van Huysum II was a famous and talented painter of battle scenes. However, he died already at the age of 22 years. Jan van Huysum was apprenticed to his father, but soon exceeded the skills of his father. He was a very versatile painter and tried his hand at various subjects such as landscapes, fight scenes, portraits and still lifes. Jan van Huysum's daughter Francina Margaretha became a painter of still lifes and especially of flowers, just as he did. She is said to have later assisted him with some of his works.

Nearly half of van Huysum's paintings that are publicly exhibited today are landscape paintings. Many of the scenes he painted were largely the product of his imagination. Accordingly, they seemed very one-dimensional and lifeless and were not as sought-after as his paintings of flowers and fruits. Finally, he was trained by his father as a painter of still lifes. Van Huysum stood out strongly from other Dutch still life painters. He was one of the first artists to choose a light background for his works. Moreover, he insisted that everything he depicted in his paintings should be painted solely from direct observation. This attention to detail went so far that he had a customer tell her that she had to wait a year for her painting. He justified the delay by saying that the yellow rose he needed for the painting was not available now. In his works van Huysum used flowers from all seasons, colour variations, states of blooming and withering. Often he also painted some insects into the picture to make it look even more natural.

Van Huysum did not only want to entertain and flatter the eye with his works, but to call the viewer to faith. Van Huysum was highly regarded among his contemporaries and they called him the phoenix of flower painters. He was one of the few painters who were able to earn large sums of money for their works during his lifetime. Lovers often paid thousands of guilders and more for one of his paintings. Van Huysum was known beyond the borders of the country and was also commissioned by some nobility and royal family. In his later years, however, van Huysum's talent seemed to be gradually diminishing and his works were no longer so finely elaborated and therefore less sought after. He died at the age of 66 in his home town of Amsterdam, leaving his family a considerable fortune of around 20,000 guilders. Van Huysum was not a traditional teacher, but he left his mark on the art scene until the 19th century. Many artists such as Jan van Os, Gerard van Spaendonck or Ferdinand Georg Waldmuller oriented themselves on van Huysum's works and tried to imitate his style. © Meisterdrucke
