Philips Wouwerman

Born: 1619 , Netherlands, Haarlem   Died: 1668, Haarlem

Painter. From a family of painters. Possibly a pupil of Frans Hals (1582/3-1666) and also of Evert Decker (d 1647), the latter in Hamburg. He produced landscapes featuring activity such as battles, camps, hunts and inns and he was particularly acclaimed for his representations of horses. His work was popular in the eighteenth century and was widely reproduced in engravings. Among his pupils were his two brothers, Pieter Wouwerman (1623-1682) and Johannes Wouwerman (1629-1666)
