Paul DeVos

1591 - 1678
Origin: Flanders (Antwerp)
Born: 1591(?), Hulst, Flanders
Died: 1678

Born in the Flemish town of Hulst (located in the Netherlands today) around 1591, Paul De Vos belonged to a family of painters. His older brother, Cornelis De Vos, was famous for his portraits and history subjects, while his well-known brother-in-law, Frans Snyders, influenced De Vos' personal style and decision to paint mainly hunting scenes, still-life images, and animal subjects. De Vos began training in Snyders' studio sometime during the latter half of the first decade in the seventeenth century, and became a master in Antwerp’s significant Guild of Saint Luke in 1620.
