Georg Flegel (1566 – 23 March 1638, Frankfurt-am-Main) was a German painter. He is today best known for his still life paintings. He was born in Olmütz (Olomouc), Moravia, now a region in the Czech Republic. Around 1580 he moved to Vienna to become an assistant to Lucas van Valckenborch I, a painter and draughtsman from Flandre who served in the court of the Habsburgs. As an assistant to Valckenborch, Flegel added items such as fruit, flowers, insects and table utensils to Valckenborch´s paintings. Aside from being a highly trained painter with great skills, his charm and wit truly elevated the paintings he worked on.
