John Derian Insects and Butterflies Desk Cup from The Met Museum


Pen Desk Cup, Home Office Gift Our handsome decoupage desk accessory shows details from Insects, Butterflies, and a Dragonfly by Jan van Kessel (Flemish, 1626-1679). Van Kessel was noted for his aesthetic arrangements of meticulously drawn insects. To make this arresting work on paper, the artist likely drew from prints as well as from life. Adapted from the Museum’s Department of Drawings and Prints, this art-inspired design was made exclusively for The Met by John Derian. Based in New York City, Derian’s workshop is celebrated for his unique decoupage creations featuring hand-blown glass.
