Gerard Seghers

Mar 17, 1591 - Mar 18, 1651

Gerard Seghers was a Flemish painter, art collector, and art dealer. After a period of study and residence in Rome, he returned to Flanders where he became one of the leading representatives of the Flemish Caravaggisti movement. In his later career he abandoned the Caravaggist style and genre motifs to become an important painter of large altarpieces for local churches.
