Antoine Monnoyer was trained by his father, Jean-Baptiste Monnoyer. His apprenticeship took place in England, when his father was summoned by Sir Ralph Montagu, English ambassador to France, to decorate the Burlington Hotel.

Antoine Monnoyer then spent time in Rome, before being admitted to the Académie in 1704, after working at the Trianon. He worked on the decoration of the Versailles chapel and painted two large formats for the Château de Meudon in the 1710s.

He returned to Italy and England, then spent time in Denmark and Sweden, becoming a much sought-after traveler in the great European courts for his flower paintings, which enjoyed great success throughout the 18th century.

Influenced by his father's painting, he nevertheless succeeded in developing his own style, which was much more decorative in scope. Indeed, as in this painting of blue anemones, a color that does not exist in nature, the natural specimens he used as models were then reinterpreted using a color palette that met the painting's decorative needs.
