Jan Frans Van Dael (1764-1840): Still life of flowers, oil on canvas


Work: 32 x 25 cm

Frame: 45,5 x 33,3 cm

Presented in its original Neoclassical frame, with the canvas marked 'Belot Rue de l'Arbre Sec N°3' for one of the most famous canvas suppliers in Paris and Europe. The business of the painter, Michel Belot (1730-92), followed by his widow Marie and his son Michel (b.1762), initially in association with two half-brothers, was one of the most important of the period, supplying canvases and colours to artists and restoring pictures, in particular for the French State. When Michel Belot retired in 1824, Pierre Auguste Vallé (1801-45) and Prince Charlemagne Bourniche (1802-42), two of his pupils, formed a partnership to take on the business as colour merchants and picture restorers in rue de l’Arbre Sec, near the Louvre, advertising as ‘seuls élèves et successeurs de Belot’.
