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.

According to Houbraken, Dirck studied with his brother Frans. From 1618 to 1626, and again in 1640, he was a member of De Wijngaertranken, the rhetoricians’ chamber to which Frans also belonged. He was a member of the guild of St Luke in Haarlem from 1627 unti  ...  Displaying 750 of 1688 characters.
