Jan Brueghel the Elder (Dutch artist, 1568-1625)


Jan Brueghel the Elder is one of the most important Flemish painters of the early 17th century. He developed his own individual style at an early stage. His small-format landscape paintings, true-to-life floral works and richly detailed allegories were ground-breaking for Flemish Baroque painting.

Feast of Achelous - Jan Brueghel and his friend Rubens collaborated on a number of mythological and religious pictures about 1610–20. In this panel Rubens designed and painted the figure groups and Brueghel painted everything else. The river god Acheloüs explains to the Greek hero Theseus that a distant island is his former lover Perimele, transformed by Neptune so that she could remain forever within the river’s embrace.
