rating ***

Flemish painter and draughtsman, active in France. His first surviving painting is the Winter Landscape in the manner of Jan Breughel I, who may have been his master. However, a drawing of a River Scene  containing references to such Dutch landscape masters as Willem Buytewech and Esaias van de Velde (i), suggests that he may have trained in Holland. In 1614 he became a master in the artists’ guild in Antwerp and in 1616 in that of Brussels. Soon afterwards he was in Heidelberg, working for Frederick V, the Elector Palatine. A Mountainous Landscape with Huntsmen of the same year 1620 (a sweeping panorama with a bluish horizon) recalls the style of Josse de Momper II.
