ABOUT THE ARTIST
Jacob Marrel (Frankenthal, 1614 Frankfurt am Main, buried November 11, 1681) was a German painter, who worked in the Netherlands. He painted flowers and fruit still lifes in a botanical style, among other things. Jacob Marrel was the son of the town clerk of Frankenthal. After his death, the family moved to Frankfurt in 1624. There Jacob was apprenticed to the still life painter Georg Flegel. In 1630 he moved to Utrecht, where he married. He may have been a student of Jan Davidsz. the Hem. Around 1650 he returned to Frankfurt, where he married a second time, and where he counted among his pupils Abraham Mignon, Johann Andreas Graff, Rudolf Werdmüller, and his stepdaughter Maria Sibylla Merian. In 1664 Jacob Marrel left for Utrecht again, accompanied by Maria Sibylla Merian and Abraham Mignon. He ran an art dealership there. He spent his last years, from 1679, in Frankfurt. Jacob Marrel painted still lifes in the vein of Jan Davidsz. the Hem.
