Jan Cossiers (Antwerp, 15 July 1600 – Antwerp, 4 July 1671) was a Flemish painter and draughtsman. Cossiers’ earliest works were Caravaggesque genre works depicting low excitement scenes. Later in his career he painted mostly history and religious subjects as skillfully as portraits. Cossiers was one of the leading painters in Antwerp after Rubens’ death in 1640 and one of the most indigenous colorists in 17th-century Flanders.
