Jacob Jordaens, 1593-1678, was Flemish Baroque painter to bring prestige to the Antwerp school of painting and best known today for his numerous large genre scenes. Jordaens was good at using a warm palette and the naturalism and had a mastery of chiaroscuro and tenebrism. The artist was only moderately successful as a portrait painter but excelled in representations of the base character of humanity. Jacob Jordaens paintings were also in depictions in biblical, mythological, and allegorical subjects and even etched a number of plates. -- The Copyright of Scripts is Reserved by Toperfect.
