A master of loose brushwork

Frans Hals (Antwerp, 1582/1583 – Haarlem, 1666), together with Rembrandt and Vermeer, is one of the three greatest painters of the Dutch Golden Age. He mainly painted genre scenes and portraits, and is best known for his free, painterly brushstroke.

Frans Hals worked in Haarlem from 1603 until his death in 1666 and became a member of the Guild of Saint Luke in 1610. He would continue to paint until his eighties but started as a pupil in the studio of Karel van Mander. Once he became an accomplished painter, he took, among others, his younger brother Dirck Hals, Judith Leyster, Jan Miense Molenaer, Pieter Gerritsz van Roestraeten and Johannes Cornelisz Verspronck under his wing.
