Teniers, David, The Elder

Teniers, David, The Elder

▪ Flemish painter
born 1582, Antwerp
died July 29, 1649, Antwerp

      Flemish Baroque painter of genre scenes, landscapes, and religious subjects.

      Teniers apparently began his career as a pupil of his brother Juliaen; he is also said to have studied in Italy under Elsheimer and Rubens. He became a master in the Antwerp guild in 1606–07, and in the 1630s is recorded as an art dealer. A number of paintings in the style of his more famous son were formerly attributed to him, but in fact almost nothing is known about his work except that religious subjects seem to have predominated.
