Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Jacob van Huysum (c.1687 Amsterdam - 1740), was a Dutch botanical artist. Both his father Justus van Huysum (1659-1716), and his brother Jan van Huysum (1682-1749), were celebrated flower painters. His manner of painting was very like that of his brother. His approach to botanical illustration, while preserving botanical accuracy, captured a more painterly aspect of his subject. This contrasts with the meticulously exact mode of Georg Dionysius Ehret, his contemporary colleague.
