COURTIERS STROLLING IN A GARDEN

Catalogue Note

Having trained in Antwerp, Hieronymus Francken I is documented in Paris from 1566 to 1572.  After a brief return to his hometown in 1574, he settled in Fontainebleau, taking employment at the French court and in 1594 was appointed Pientre du Roi to King Henry IV of France, remaining in Fontainebleau until his death.  Along with the work of Lodewijck Toeput, called Lodovico Pozzoserrato, Francken’s compositions with elegant groups of dancing figures, musicians and courtiers anticipated those scenes popularized by his nephew, Frans Francken II.
