Paul de Vos


(b Hulst, 1591–2 or 9 Dec 1595; d Antwerp, 30 June 1678). 

Painter and draughtsman, brother of Cornelis de Vos. Paul is perhaps best described as a gifted follower of his brother-in-law Snyders rather than as a truly original artist. Like Snyders, he specialized in still-lifes, animal and hunting scenes, generally on a large scale, and his works were in demand in the same aristocratic circles.
