David Teniers II was the most famous 17th-century painter of peasant life. He enjoyed international popularity in his own lifetime and during the 18th century, especially in France. Teniers's success was marked by the acquisition of a country house in 1662 and by the grant in 1680 of a patent of nobility. His work was imitated by many followers, including his son, David Teniers III.
David Teniers II was a Flemish painter known for his luminous depictions of peasant life. His work was greatly influenced by the tavern scenes of Adriaen Brouwer and the fluid paint handling of Peter Paul Rubens.
Born on December 15, 1610 in Antwerp, Belgium, he was the son of the artist David Teniers the Elder, with whom he studied as a youth. Notably, Teniers later married the daughter of the painter Jan Brueghel the Elder.
In the early 1630s, the Haarlem-based painter Brouwer moved to Antwerp, Teniers exposure to his low-genre paintings was a turning point in his career. Over the following decades, he enjoyed a popular reputation around Europe.
Though most of his works were modest in scale, he was a prolific artist and is thought to have completed some 2,000 paintings over the course of his career. Teniers died on April 25, 1690 in Brussels, Belgium. Today, his work can be found in the Louvre in Paris, the National Gallery of Art in London, the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, and the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, among others.
