description

Summary

Jan Cossiers (1600–1671) earliest works were Caravaggesque genre works depicting low life scenes. Later in his career, he painted mostly history and religious subjects as well as portraits. Cossiers was one of the leading painters in Antwerp after Rubens’ death in 1640 and one of the most original colorists in 17th-century Flanders. Jan Cossiers was a versatile artist who worked in various genres such as portraits, genre, and history paintings. There was a clear evolution in Cossiers career, which was not unlike that of some of his Antwerp contemporaries such as Simon de Vos and Theodoor Rombouts.
