A Still Life of Flowers with Crown Imperial Lilies and Anenomes, in a Gilt Urn on a Draped Table, by Jean Baptiste Monnoyer (1636-1699) and Studio.

Oil on canvas, 120.5cm by 67.5cm. The painting is a pair to PIC395. The 1738 Burghley Inventory records: “The Marble Saloon.. On each Side the Glass Folding-Doors which lead into the Garden, Flower-Pieces 4 Feet long, 2 Feet 4 Inches wide, done by Lauron.” Today, they remain in the same location.

The Franco-Flemish artist specialised in the painting of flower pieces and also worked closely with the tapestry workshops at both the Gobelins and Beauvais, creating cartoons of fruit and flowers for the weavers.
