Jean Baptiste Monoyer (1635-99), painter of flower still lives. He was employed at Versailles before being brought to England by the Duke of Montagu (to whom this print is dedicated). He then worked at Montagu House, painting over fifty panels of fruit and flowers for overmantels and overdoors, some of which were later transferred to Boughton House, Northamptonshire.
