1589 ca1638 ca
a Dutch painter and printmaker of the Dutch Golden Age. He was "the most inspired, experimental and original landscapist" of his period and an even more innovative printmaker. He moved to Amsterdam in 1596. There Hercules was apprenticed to the leading Flemish landscapist of the day Gillis van Coninxloo, but his apprenticeship was presumably cut short by Coninxloo's death in 1606. Seghers and his father bought a number of his works at the auction of the studio contents, as Pieter Lastman did. Seghers' father died in 1612, after which he returned to Haarlem, joining the Haarlem Guild of St. Luke.
