Historical Artist - Jan Cossiers (1600 - 1671)

During his early career, Jan Cossiers traveled throughout Italy and France and served two apprenticeships. He settled in Antwerp in 1627 and became a master in the Guild of Saint Luke a year later. Cossiers collaborated with Peter Paul Rubens in the late 1630’s, executing multiple paintings from Ruben’s designs. He later painted religious narratives for churches that were noted for their subtle color and expressive subjects. He studied under Cornelis de Vos in Antwerp before travelling to Aix-en-Provence and then to Rome by 1624. In 1628 he entered Antwerp's guild of St. Luke. During the 1630s his painting was more strongly influenced by the monumentality and coloring of Peter Paul Rubens, with whom he also assisted on large projects. Among his late religious paintings is the large Passion of Christ in the Church of the Beguines, Mechelen.
