Frans Snyders

1579-1657 Belgium/Baroque

 

Brief Biography-Frans Snyders of Antwerp was a disciple of Pieter Bruegel the Younger and Hendrik van Balen. He was a painter of still lifes and animals, mostly hunting. After visiting Italy, he joined the atelier of Rubens in Antwerp, and his style changed from the influence of Bruegel's stills to lively animal scenes. While working with Rubens, they inserted staffage into each other's paintings until Rubens died in 1640. Snyders later made the same agreement with Jacob Jordaens. He married Margaretha de Vos, the sister of Paul and Cornelis de Vos, with whom he also collaborated.
