Jan Van Kassel was a Flemish painter active in Antwerp in the mid 17th century. A versatile artist he practiced in many genres including studies of insects, floral still lifes, marines, river landscapes, paradise landscapes, allegorical compositions, scenes with animals and genre scenes. A scion of the Brueghel family many of his subjects took inspiration from the work of his grandfather Jan Brueghel. He often collaborated with other artists such as Rubens, Jordaens and van Dyck and his work was much sought after by collectors. His early work was influenced by Caravaggio and David Teniers but he quickly developed his own distinctive style. His use of light and shade and his ability to create a sense of space set his work apart from that of his contemporaries. Today Van Kassel's paintings are to be found in museums and private collections all over the world.
Van Kessel was a highly skilled and talented artist, who was much sought after by those who could afford his works. His paintings were often collected by artisans, merchants, nobles and foreign luminaries throughout Europe. He was particularly well known for his landscapes, which often depicted scenes from classical mythology. However, he was also adept at painting portraits and cityscapes. In addition to his artistic talent, Van Kessel was also a very pleasant and affable person. He was known for being very helpful and patient with his students, and many of them went on to become successful artists in their own right. It is no wonder that his works were so highly prized by his contemporaries.
