Biography from Auctionata:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Jan Frans van Dael was born in Antwerp in 1764.  At the age of twelve, he began studying architecture at the Antwerp Academy.  In 1786 he moved to Paris, where he initially worked as a decorative painter.  He quickly gained renown as a painter of portraits, interiors and religious subjects before he devoted himself primarily to the representation of floral and fruit still lifes.

From 1791 van Dael regularly exhibited his work in the Parisian Salons and was honored with numerous awards, his sough-after works achieved the highest prices.  He was popular with the French ruler and a protégé of the Empresses Josephine and Marie-Louise.   For the wife of Napoleon, he created two large paintings ‘L’ Offrande à Flore’ and ‘Le Tombeau de Julie’.

From 1796 he had a studio in the Louvre where he made the acquaintance of fellow still life painters Pierre Joseph Redouté and Gerard van Spaendonck.  Works of the artist are held in various prestigious collections, including the Musée du Louvre in Paris, the Hermitage in St. Petersburg and in Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge.  He died in 1840.
