German Baroque Painter
Georg Flegel (1566 - 1638) was a German painter, best known for his still life works.
Flegel was born in Olmutz (Olomouc), Moravia. Around 1580 he moved to Vienna, where he became the assistant to Lucas van Valckenborch I, a painter and draughtsman. Flegel and his employer later moved to Frankfurt, which at the time was an important art-dealing city. As an assistant, he inserted items such as fruit, flowers, and table utensils into Valckenborch's works.
In a period of about 30 years (c. 1600-1630), he produced 110 watercolor pictures, mostly still life images which often depicted tables set for meals and covered with food, flowers, and the occasional animal. Among his students were his own two sons, Friedrich (1596/1597-1616) and Jacob (probably Leonhard, 1602-1623), as well as the artist Jacob Marrel.
