David Teniers the Younger or David Teniers II was a Flemish Baroque painter, printmaker, draughtsman, and miniaturist painter. He was an extremely versatile artist known for his prolific output and an innovator in a wide range of genres such as history painting, genre painting, landscape painting, portrait and still life. He is now best remembered as the leading Flemish genre painter of his day. Teniers is particularly known for developing the peasant genre, the tavern scene, pictures of collections and scenes with alchemists and physicians. He was court painter and the curator of the collection of Archduke Leopold Wilhelm, the art-loving Governor General of the Habsburg Netherlands.  (source:  Wikipedia)
