David Vinckboons (1576-1632) | Pittore del Secolo d'oro Olandese

La famiglia si trasferì ad Anversa intorno al 1585. Probabilmente a causa delle guerre di religione nei Paesi Bassi meridionali, si spostò a Middelburg nel 1586 circa, e infine ad Amsterdam dove il padre Philip divenne un cittadino nel 1591.

Adam de Coster (1586-1643) | Card players by candlelight

In the absence of signed and documented works by Flemish painter🎨 Adam De Coster (1586-1643), all attributions have been based on Lucas Vorsterman's engraving after a lost original entitled "The Trick-trak player".
The present painting, which was also engraved by Vorsterman, shares a number of similarities with this key, lost work.
Both compositions are multi-figural and lit by candlelight, with a figure in the foreground partially shading the light source.
The artist adopts a low viewpoint in both paintings which means that the table-tops are hardly visible.

Rubens | Portrait of Susanna Lunden, 1622

This painting is one of the most famous by Peter Paul Rubens🎨 (Flemish Baroque Era painter, 1577-1640) in the Collection of the National Gallery, London.
The title 'Le Chapeau de Paille' (meaning The Straw Hat) was first used in the 18th century. In fact the hat is not straw; 'paille' may be an error for 'poil', which is the French word for felt.
The hat, which shades the face of the sitter, is the most prominent feature of the painting.
The portrait is probably of Susanna Lunden, born Susanna Fourment, third daughter of Daniel Fourment, an Antwerp tapestry and silk merchant. Her younger sister Helena became Rubens's second wife in 1630.

Ambrosius Benson (1495-1550)

Ambrogio Benzone, o Ambrosius Benson in fiammingo, è stato un pittore italiano, di origine lombarda, attivo a Bruges.
Si ignorano la data precisa e il luogo della nascita, che si ipotizza sia avvenuta nei dintorni di Milano, per via del nome Ambrogio. Dovette trasferirsi piuttosto giovane a Bruges nelle Fiandre, proveniente dalla Lombardia.
Inizialmente fu allievo del pittore Gerard David, dal quale venne profondamente influenzato, ma i rapporti con il suo maestro dovettero successivamente guastarsi ed è documentata una causa intentata dal Benzone contro di lui.
Nel 1518 aveva preso la cittadinanza di Bruges, modificando il suo nome con quello di Ambrosius Benson, con il quale firmò tutte le sue opere e nel 1519 venne ammesso nella gilda cittadina degli artisti e pittori. Fu membro per tre volte del consiglio della città.

Robert Campin (1375-1444)

Campin's identity and the attribution of the paintings in both the "Campin" and "Master of Flémalle" groupings have been a matter of controversy for decades.

Sir Anthony van Dyck - Family Portrait, 1621

Sir Anthony van Dyck studied under Peter Paul Rubens and was one of his most accomplished students. Van Dyck's career flourished and he went on to become England's leading court painter.
Using his own compositional techniques, van Dyck was soon ranked alongside Titian in terms of style and the relaxed elegance of his portraits helped shape English portraiture for almost two centuries. Anthony van Dyck was particularly well-known for redefining the iconographical style as well as his fresh approach to new color schemes.
As well as portraits van Dyck also painted biblical and mythological subjects and was an accomplished etcher and engraver in his own right. He would often sketch his works as practise before executing the final version onto canvas.
His etchings in particular show his great ability to define light and shadow contrasts and his dexterity in creating fine lines and detail to ensure a realistic rendering of the sitter.
