Jean-Baptiste Monnoyer

(1636 - 1699)

Born in Lille and educated in Antwerp, Jean-Baptiste Monnoyer was a Franco-Flemish painter who specialised in flower pieces.

He was attached to the Gobelins Beauvais tapestry workshops, where he produced cartoons of fruit and flowers for the tapestry-weavers during the 1600s. He was received at the Académie Royale de Peinture et de Sculpture in 1665 and later, left France for England, to work on painting decorations for Montagu House, Bloomsbury, London, where he produced over 50 panels of fruit and flowers. Monnoyer’s work is well represented in a number of notable museum and gallery collections all over the world.
