His works can be seen at Versailles, Trianon, Marly, and Meudon and was commissioned by English nobility during his London residence. He provided over fifty panels of fruit and flowers for over mantels and over doors for the Montague House in England, and also was commissioned by Queen Mary II, Queen Anne, and various collectors.
