1622-1674

Flemish Baroque Painter

Pieter Boel was a Flemish painter who lived from 1622 to 1674. He was born in Antwerp, Belgium, into a family of artists. His father, Jan Boel, was a painter, and his brother, Quirijn Boel, was a sculptor.

Pieter Boel was trained in his father's workshop, and later studied under the animal painter Jan Fyt. He quickly developed a reputation as a skilled painter of animals, particularly dogs, and was employed by wealthy collectors to paint portraits of their pets.

In 1651, Boel became a member of the Antwerp Guild of St. Luke, which was a prestigious organization for artists. He continued to paint animals throughout his career, but also began to experiment with still life paintings and landscapes.

Boel's most famous works are his hunting scenes, which show packs of dogs chasing after wild game. These paintings are characterized by their dynamic compositions and realistic depictions of animals in motion.

Boel also collaborated with other artists, including Jan Brueghel the Younger and David Teniers the Younger, on large-scale paintings and tapestries.

Despite his success as an artist, Boel struggled with financial difficulties throughout his life. He died in poverty in Paris in 1674.

Today, Pieter Boel's paintings can be found in museums and private collections around the world, including the Louvre in Paris, the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, and the National Gallery in London.
