Cornelis de Vos (1584-1651)
De Vos earned his living painting portraits of the wealthy bourgeoisie. This was the primary genre he practiced and the one he is today best known for. In terms of style and composition, he was particularly inspired by contemporary Baroque artists such as Rubens and van Dyck, but he himself was not an innovator within painting. Although de Vos’ work belongs to the more factual and conservative side of the Dutch Baroque, he was a very popular and frequently employed portrait painter in his time. He specialised in large family portraits, and he was able to create a name for himself on equal footing with other great artists of the period in the Netherlands.
