Cabinet, Jan van Mekeren, c. 1695 - c. 1710

wood (plant material), h 205.5cm × w 174.0cm × d 61.0cm. More details

Jan van Mekeren was probably the most important Amsterdam cabinetmaker in the late 17th century. He specialized in floral marquetry, of which this cabinet is a spectacular example. The doors resemble large paintings in wood. The flowers were made separately and then combined into lavish bouquets. The cabinet’s sober, flat design does not draw attention away from the decoration.
