Jan Frans van Dael was born in Antwerp in 1764 and died in Paris in 1840.

Flemish painter, he has been living in France a great part of his life, since 1786.

He participated in the trompe l'oeil decoration of the castles of St Cloud, Bellevue and Chantilly.

The influence of his master, Gerard van Spaendonck was determinant in van Dael's decision of specialising in still-life of fruits and flowers.

He exhibited his works for the first time at the 1793's show in the Louvre.

From 1806 to 1817, he has been living in the Sorbonne, as an artist protected by the French Government, at the beginning under the protection of Josephine and Marie-Louise, the wife of Napoleon 1srt, and afterwards under the protection of Louis XVIII and Charles X, kings of France.

Jan Frans van Dael was rewarded with the "Legion d'Honneur" in 1825.

He lays in the "Père Lachaize" cemetery, close to his master van Spaendonck.
