Alexander Adriaenssen


Flaman baroque painter Alexander Adriaenssen was born in Antwerp (1587). Alexander was registered as the pupil of Artus van Laeck in 1597. In 1610 he became a master of the Guild of St. Luke of Antwerp. As he had trained particularly in the art of painting coats of arms on parchment, he was registered as a water colour painter. He soon became skilled in painting with oil and specialized in still life.
