(bapt. Brussels, 12 Oct. 1613; d Brussels, ?May 1686). Flemish landscape painter, active in Brussels. He specialized in wooded landscapes, with figures that were often added by other artists, notably Teniers the Younger. Few dated works exist, the development of his style is not easily followed, and the work of his brother, Nicolas (1617–?), and his son, Jean-Baptiste (1638–?), is sometimes indistinguishable from his.
