The Philosophy of Still life : Frans Snyders

On this day one of the greatest Flemish still life painters Frans Snyders was born. He was an apprentice of Peter Brueghel the Younger and  Hendrick van Balen. Since 1609 the artist worked in the studio of Peter Paul Rubens, in whose canvases he painted flowers, fruits and animals. It comes as no surprise Ruben’s influence is so evident in Snyder’s pieces. As the result he created large-scale works featuring market scenes, still lifes and hunting scenes. Glorifying Nature the master delicately depicted their texture and skillfully orchestrated compositions and palette of the images.

Birds were one of the most popular motifs in Snyder’s oeuvre, so enjoy a selection of the paintings with them.
