Catalogue Note

Jacob Savery was the elder brother of Roelandt Savery, from whom he probably received his early training. He may have been a pupil of Hans Bol, whose influence is particularly evident in Jacob's earliest known works of 1584–86. Between 1580–85 religious persecutions led him to seek sanctuary in the northern Netherlands – in 1587 he was registered as a member of the Haarlem Guild of Painters, and he became a citizen of Amsterdam in 1591, the same year as his supposed master. He was also largely inspired by Gillis van Coninxloo, who was active in Amsterdam in 1595, as well as Pieter Brueghel the Younger, of whose works he is now thought to have made deliberate forgeries.
