Alongside Peter Paul Rubens and Anthony van Dyck, Jacob Jordaens is considered a leading figure of the Flemish Baroque. Unlike many of his peers, Jordaens never studied abroad in Italy, though he drew inspiration from Northern Italian painters Paolo Veronese and Caravaggio. He studied under Adam Van Noort, who also instructed Rubens. In his time, Jordaens was thought to possess a distinctly Flemish style of painting, particularly in his color choices, humor, and exaggeratedly expressive figures. A hallmark of his infamous party scenes and boisterous genre works is the robust and ruddy body, glowing and round. In addition to oil paintings, Jordaens also produced watercolors, engravings, and designs for tapestries.
