Notes

Jan van den Hecke the Elder was a Flemish painter of mainly flower still lifes and some italianate landscapes. Calcedonia is one of the oldest and rarest types of glass. Calcedonia was first developed in Murano (Venice) during the mid-fifteenth century. For fivehundred years, the mystery of creating ‘Calcedonia glass’ has fascinated the world. Artifacts made of it are among the most treasured holdings of many famous museums. The uncertainties and difficulties of Calcedonia glass production were resolved only by the masters of Murano and disappeared with the fall of the Venetian Republic.
