Juan de Arellano

1614-1676 Spain/Baroque

 

Brief Biography-Juan de Arellano was born in Santorcaz, he specialised in still life paintings of flowers. He first studied art in the city of Alcalá de Henares. His primary influence came from the Flemish artists Daniel Seghers and Jan Brueghel the Elder. The Italian still life painter Mario Nuzzi was a further inspiration for Arellano. He began painting floral stills at the age of thirty-six when he realised they were easier to paint and were more profitable than other genres by his standards. He set up shop in Madrid where he vended works for most of his life.
