Born in Ghent in 1838, Jean Capeinick was a painter of floral and still-life images. After his school career at the Industrial School, he studied and later taught at the Academy in Ghent. He taught Rodolphe Wytsman and Juliette Trullemans, two well-known painters of flower and plant scenes of the Impressionist School. During this time he participated in the Salons in Ghent from 1862 onwards, and became professor at the Academy in Ghent in 1872. His still-life paintings of flowers, fruit, and vegetables became widely acclaimed, and his penetrating realism was greatly admired. His favourite flowers for his still life scenes were roses and lilacs.
Capeinick established his reputation in Ghent with a sequence of four decorative paintings illustrating the four seasons, intended for the Hotel d'Allemagne. In addition, in 1873, he won first prize at the Ghent Flower Show. Capeinick settled in Brussels for the last few years of his life. Unfortunately he was the victim of a nervous disorder, which hindered his artistic activity. He died in Schaerbeek, in 1890.

We partner with the world's top museums and galleries to bring you exclusive prints of the highest quality. Our teams of designers ensure the colours are accurate, papers are well suited and the best frames are suggested.
In the printing room, artworks are printed on state-of-the-art machines with a team of technicians checking colour and quality every step of the way.
After being cut down to size, our team carefully finish any stray edges, check measurements and prepare the prints for mounting and framing.
We have a team of master framers who work with high-quality, responsibly-sourced wood to create our vast range of framing combinations - each frame is bespoke and made to order for every print.
Our selection of hand-finished frames are painted or stained by hand in a variety of colours, and finished with a layer of wax - the end result is a uniquely crafted, beautiful frame that is made to last.
In this workshop everything comes together - the print, the frame and the glass - in a seamless and stream-lined process.
The artwork is carefully mounted in preparation for framing.
Once mounted, the print is ready to be covered by glass or perspex - a delicate procedure but expertly done with not a fingerprint in sight.
After a final, thorough check, the framed print is ready to be carefully packaged up and shipped to the customer.
For those who order their art as canvas prints, the same amount of attention and care goes into the process. Here, the print is being transferred to a wooden frame.
As with the framed prints, our canvases are all hand-finished in the workshop - a labour of love from start to finish.
