1544-1607

Flemish Baroque Painter

Gillis van Coninxloo (1544-1607) was a Flemish painter known for his landscapes and forest scenes. He was born in Antwerp, Belgium, but spent most of his career in the Dutch Republic.

Van Coninxloo studied under Pieter Coecke van Aelst, Lenaert Kroes and Gillis Mostaert. He later became a master in the Antwerp Guild of Saint Luke in 1563. He then moved to Amsterdam in 1570, where he worked for the rest of his life.

Van Coninxloo was a member of the painter's guild in Amsterdam, and he taught many pupils, including Hans Vredeman de Vries, the son of his fellow artist Cornelis Floris de Vriendt. He was known for his detailed landscapes, which were influenced by the works of Joachim Patinir and Pieter Bruegel the Elder. He often included religious or mythological figures in his landscapes, creating scenes that were both beautiful and contemplative.

Van Coninxloo's paintings were highly sought after by collectors, and he was known for his meticulous attention to detail and his use of vivid colors. He was also one of the first landscape painters to use a single vanishing point in his compositions, which helped create a sense of depth and perspective.

Van Coninxloo died in Amsterdam in 1607, but his influence on landscape painting continued long after his death. His son-in-law, David Vinckboons, became a successful painter in his own right, and many other artists were influenced by his style. Today, his paintings can be found in museums and private collections around the world, including the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam and the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C.
