Frans Hals – Dutch Portrait Painter

Frans Hals (1580-1666) was a Dutch Golden Age painter who is best known for his many portrait paintings. His style is noted for a loose brush style and also helped evolve the 17th century group portraiture. He lived most of his life in the city of Haarlem, where his talents for painting were greatly in demand, particularly by wealthy citizens. Our collection of patterns contains many of his most recognizable paintings including Jester with a Lute, Portrait of René Descartes, Pieter van dem Broecke, Malle Babbe, Marriage Portrait of Isaac Massa, Two Boys Singing, and The Laughing Cavalier.
