David Teniers the Younger (1610 – 1690) was a Flemish painter.
His art was influenced by Elsheimer, Rubens, Brouwer and his father-in-law Jan Brueghel.
Teniers is considered as the the most famous 17th-century painter of peasant life and the last representative of the great Flemish traditions of this period.
He was very popular in his own lifetime but also during the 18th century, especially in France and he was working for the King of Spain, the Prince William of Orange and the Governor of the Netherlands, the Archduke Leopold William.
The museums in Madrid, St Petersburg, Vienna, Munich, Dresden, Paris, London and Brussels have more than 200 pictures by Teniers. In the United Kingdom, 150 may be found in private hands. There are nearly 300 paintings in public collections in the United Kingdom.
