Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Born into an artistic family in Antwerp, Boel was a pupil of the animal painter Jan Fyt (1611-1661).  After traveling to Italy as a young man, he settled in Paris in circa 1668 where he joined the great tapestry workshop established by Charles Le Brun (1619-1690).

Like his former master Fyt, Boel came to specialize in painting animals and he was particularly renowned for the striking realism of his pictures.  He made studies for them from specimens in the royal menageries at Ve (showing 500 of 2033 characters).
