Jacob Marrel (ca 1613-1681) was born in Frankenthal, Germany. He became a very popular still life painter during the Dutch Golden Age. He had many flower study paintings, many were never named. I really enjoy the various colors that were used on each flower. I think it gives a lot of depth and something unique to look at. When looking at the painting, the colors are very warm and vibrant which is what drew me in. I think it is going to be interesting piece to recreate in my own style.
