About the Artist
Flemish artist Jan van Kessel (1626–1679) is most renowned for his depictions of flowers, insects, and animals, both living and dead, but he also painted shells, armor, and still lifes of fruit, bouquets, and garlands. He was greatly inspired by the scientific naturalism of Joris Hoefnagel and specialized in small-scale, brightly colored, and minutely detailed paintings from his own natural observations or illustrated scientific texts.
The elegant tulip print on this silk scarf is adapted from Jan van Kessel's Still Life of Flowers and Grapes encircling a Monstrance in a Niche (c. 1670).
