He was much more appreciated in his younger years and worked with Teniers, Luyckx and De Heem, but his financial rewards were poor; he had the reputation of being a slow worker. Dated works between 1659 and 1690; in Munich a vanitas still life by Jan Davidsz de Heem with flowers by Van Verendael; a vanitas still life in Venice by Hendrick Andriessen with flowers by Van Verendael (Willigen/Meijer 2003, p. 205); in Duverger 1984-2004, Verendael's paintings are cited in Antwerp inventories on a regular basis, attesting to his popularity.
