    Van Os is mostly known for his fruit and flower still life paintings, though he started his career painting seascapes. His floral still lifes were painted in the style of Jan van Huysum, with the flowers usually presented on a marble ledge against a green background.

    Private collection, United Kingdom

    Jan van Os was born in Middelharnis. He was taught by the animal, still life and decorative painter Aert Schouman (1710–1792) in The Hague, and joined the painters’ confraternity in 1773.

    Van Os spent the rest of his life in The Hague, although he enjoyed an international reputation and exhibited paintings in London, France, and Germany.

    He painted mainly fruit and flower pieces, in the tradition of Jan van Huysum, and also a few landscapes and seascapes. Three of his children were also painters: Georgius Jacobus Johannes van Os, Maria Margaretha van Os, and Pieter Gerardus van Os.
