Frans Hals of Antwerp DVD

Jonne Severijin (director)

Frans Hals (1582-1666) was a portrait painter with a unique style, admired for its originality and vivacity not only by the Impressionists but also by artists like Van Gogh and Picasso. Very little documentation of his life exists today, so this film uses the thorough contemplation of his canvases as the key to his story. Works by the landscape artists and still-life painters of his time help to illustrate the age in which he lived. The program furthermore exemplifies the elaborate conventions of portraiture at the time.
