Justus van Huysum was a Dutch painter, and came from a family of artists. He studied with Nicolaes Berchem and painted many different subjects, such as portraits, marine scenes, landscapes, history and battle paintings but he was best known for his flower paintings. At his death, Justus left a collection of just over six hundred and fifty works, enough to suggest that he may also have been a dealer. Of his ten children, four were painters: Jan van Huysum, Justus van Huysum II (1685-1707), Jacobus van Huysum (1687/89-1740) and Michiel van Huysum (1704–1760)Museums and Exhibitions:
Anvers: Bouquet de Fleurs; Avignon: Vase de Fleurs; Mulhouse: marines, two works.
