Happy Birthday to Jan Brueghel the Younger! He was born on September 13, 1601. He was born into a painting family. He and his brother were heavily encouraged by their father, Jan Brueghel the Elder, to continue the family business.
Jan II was born in Antwerp and took over the family business once his father passed away. He was well respected by the aristocracy of the time. He then trained his own sons in painting.
The family is most known for their landscapes.
