1586 ca1659
a Flemish Baroque landscape painter. In 1616-1619 he worked in Heidelberg, and in 1620 he traveled to Italy, where he visited Rome and Venice, where he greatly improved his style by studying the works of Titian, whose fine landscapes were the particular objects of his admiration. In 1621 he went to Paris, where he worked as a court painter for Louis XIII there and in other French locations. His pictures were so much admired by that monarch that he conferred on him the honour of knighthood, which mark of distinction is said by D'Argenville to have rendered him so vain and ridiculous, that he afterwards never painted without his sword by his side.
