(b Antwerp, c.1586; d Antwerp, 16 Oct. 1653). Flemish landscape painter, active in Antwerp, where he became a master in the painters' guild in 1604. He is best known for painting landscape backgrounds for other artists, particularly his friend Rubens, but his finest independent work—Winter Landscape with a Hunter (1624, Gemäldegalerie, Dresden)—shows he was an accomplished master in his own right.
