1629 ca1685
a Flemish painter who was active in Seville, Spain during his entire career. He was one of the leading Flemish painters working at that time in Seville and he was very close in style to Murillo. He worked in many genres, including history paintings, portraits and still lifes. Most of his dated works were made in the 1660s. He did not deny his Flemish roots but under the influence of Murillo’s work he developed a 'moderate Murillist' style. The confluence of Flemish and local artistic currents are a major feature of 17th century painting in Seville. Many of his drawings have been preserved and they distinguish themselves in their fluidity and vividness of line that was close to that of Murillo to whom they have often been attributed.
