Throw of flowers. Jan Frans Van Daël Art Versailles
Self-taught painter, Van Dael moved to Paris in 1787. Admitted for the first time to the Salon de peinture in 1793, he exhibited there regularly until 1833.
Specializing in still lifes of flower vases and fruit baskets, he enjoys wide public and institutional recognition. A prize of 4000 francs was awarded to him at the Salon of the year IX (1801), and he obtained a gold medal twice at the Salons of 1810 and 1819.
He was named Knight of the Legion of Honor in 1825 and became a member of the Royal Society for the Encouragement of the Fine Arts in Antwerp, and a member of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Amsterdam.

Two of his works were acquired by Empress Joséphine and a third by Empress Marie-Louise under princely patronage.

Van Dael gives painting lessons for women in his Parisian studio.
He is buried in Paris in the Père-Lachaise cemetery.

The painting represents a bouquet of flower, the artist was a specialist in the representation of still life.

How to make watercolors?
There are two techniques of watercolor painting. The first, called the dry or «wet on dry» technique, involves painting with a wet brush on dry paper. The other technique, known as the wet or “wet on wet” technique, consists in humidifying the paper before painting on it with a wet brush.
