1683, Jul 271735
a Flemish painter known for his cavalry battle scenes and landscapes with genre scenes of village festivals and fairs. Jan Pieter van Bredael was born into an artist family in Antwerp as the eldest son of Joris van Bredael and Johanna Maria van Diepenbeeck. His father, his grandfather Peeter van Bredael as well as his uncles Jan Frans van Bredael and Jan Peeter the Elder were all painters. In a time of increased conflict with the Ottoman Empire there was a significant demand for paintings depicting battles between Christian and Turkish forces. His patron Prince Eugene was an important general in the war against the Ottomans and commissioned from Jan Pieter several pictures on this subject as well as of hunting scenes.
