Jan Brueghel was the youngest son of the brilliant and idiosyncratic Pieter Brueghel. His older brother, Pieter II, is mainly known as a copyist of his father's works, but perhaps because his father died when he was an infant, Jan developed a very different style.

A skilled landscapist and still-life painter, Jan Brueghel often collaborated with other artists (most notably Peter Paul Rubens) when there was a need to put figures into the foreground of a scene.
