Biography Dirck Hals
DIRCK HALS?1591 – Haarlem – 1656
Dirck Hals was a painter and draughtsman of genre scenes with small-scale figures, particularly merry companies in interiors and bucolic landscapes. Dirck, the younger brother of Frans Hals (c.1582/3-1666), was born in Haarlem in 1591. His father Franchoys Hals, a clothworker originally from Mechelen, and his wife Adriaentgen van Geertenrijck had emigrated from Antwerp some time after 1585 to escape the brutal regime of the Duke of Parma.
