a Flemish painter, draftsman and decorative painter (of interiors). He is known for his merry companies, carnival scenes, landscapes and battle pieces. The details about Frans Breydel's life are sketchy. Frans Breydel was a younger brother of the painter Karel Breydel. There is no information about his training. He left for a trip, maybe to Italy, at an early age but stayed in Kassel when his work was favourably received by local patrons. He was appointed painter to the local court. He first specialised in portraits but changed to merry companies, a genre which was very popular in France at the time.
