We do not know where den Uyl was born, or who his teacher was. He most likely started out painting other subjects than still life, but no such works are known today.
He was a contemporary of Willem Claesz. Heda — and Pieter Claesz. Although he must have been successful in his own time, shortly after his death his work faded into oblivion until the early twentieth century.
Only one work is known in which the owl mark is accompanied by a J JD: Only three dated still lifes by Jan Jansz. They seem to indicate that den Uyl did not go through significant stylistic changes in the course of the five years during which those three dated works originated.
The still life from in Prague, however, has a rather strictly arranged composition, while the arrangement in has already become freer and less formal.
Although monumental and almost sturdy, like the Prague picture, the composition of the still life from possesses an added liveliness, though the obliquely placed rummer and silver cup, and the white napkin that playfully winds its way in between the objects, echoed by the curl of the lemon peel.
From that point of view, the still life under discussion here should perhaps be dated to the second half of the s: Moreover, this effect is even more apparent in a still life by the artist in the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, Rotterdam, which includes the same tazza, and which was most likely painted around the same time as the present work.
It is interesting to note that the still life discussed here is known in two more, virtually identical versions.

While the measurements of the panels differ, the objects are identical in size. Thus, the still life in the present picture possesses less surrounding space, as a result of which it has a stronger presence than the other two versions.
Since the focus in this composition is entirely on the tazza, the play of light is even more important here. Not only has den Uyl meticulously studied and rendered the details of the silver tazza, and the sparkling reflections on its intricately modelled surface, but he has also paid all possible attention to the reflections of the tazza and of the bread and its crumbs in the pewter plate upon which it stands.
As such, two ends meet in this still life: Information based on a report by Dr. Den Uyl married Geertje Jandsdr. Treck, a sister of the still-life painter Jan Jansz. The couple had two sons named Jan, which has caused some confusion, especially since the elder son also became a still-life painter.
Den Uyl painted tables laid with food, but occasionally depicted animals and landscapes. He often signed his pictures with an owl uyl in Dutch.Breakfast Still Life With Glass and Metalwork, Jan Jansz.
