JACQUES D'ARTHOIS

Jacques d'Arthois was a Flemish landscape painter active. He was born in 1613 and died in 1686. He specialized in large wooded landscapes, with figures that were often added by other artists, notably Teniers the Younger. Few dated works exist making the development of his style not easily followed, and the work of his brother, Nicolas, and his son, Jean-Baptiste, is sometimes indistinguishable from his. D'Arthois led an unstable life, being imprisoned for debt, and dying in poverty despite his successful career. Paintings from his busy studio in Brussels were often used to decorate churches; examples are in Brussels Cathedral.
