Context

Jan van Kessel the Younger was the great-grandson of Jan ‘Velvet’ Brueghel. He began his training with his father Jan van Kessel the Elder. He soon left Antwerp for Spain, in 1680, where he became a portrait painter at the court of Charles II as of 1686.
Little is known of his portraits today. He is renowned for his still lifes executed in his father's style with a taste for detail, delicate colours and a balanced composition.
His Flemish approach was gradually influenced by the Spanish style.
