Jan van Kessel was a versatile painter of still life in Antwerp, best known for his small paintings on copper on which he painted insects, shells and flowers similar to the works in Oxford. Together with 'A Cockchafer, Beetle, Woodlice and other Insects, with a Sprig of Auricula'; 'Various Spiders and Caterpillars, with a Sprig of Gooseberry' and 'A Dragon-fly, two Moths, a Spider and some Beetles, with wild Strawberries'; this little picture may have formed part of a larger set of painted fronts for small drawers in a cabinet.
