16401723
a Flemish Baroque painter, draughtsman and engraver now mainly known for his landscape drawings and etchings. He had an international career that saw him work in Paris, Rome and Antwerp. In his lifetime, the paintings of Genoels were very highly regarded but his reputation dwindled after the eighteenth century. This may be the reason why so few of his major works have survived. The surviving paintings are classically structured landscapes with mythological scenes that are based on works of Nicolas Poussin. His landscape drawings and etchings are still highly regarded. The well-structured compositions often depict Italianate architecture and small, sketchy figures set in a rich landscape. The drawings show determination and fluidity.
