(b Antwerp, c.1535; d ?Antwerp, c.1574). Netherlandish painter of large still lifes—market and kitchen pieces—active in Antwerp. Bueckelaer was the nephew and pupil of Pieter Aertsen, and he followed his uncle's preference for scenes in which a religious subject is relegated to the background by the still life or genre content (Christ in the House of Mary and Martha, 1565, Mus. Royaux, Brussels).
