Neeffs, Peeter, the elder (Flemish painter, born ca.1578, died 1656/1661)

Note: His birth and death dates are uncertain. He was born in Antwerp shortly after his elder brothers, whose births are recorded as 1576 and 1577. He was probably taught by Hendrick van Steenwijk the elder or younger. The earliest record of Pieter Neefs is a signed painting dated 1605, now in Dresden. In 1609 Pieter was enrolled as a master in the Guild of St Luke in Antwerp. In 1612 he married Maria Lauterbeens (died 1655/1656), with whom he had five children. He is known for paintings of architectural interiors that are characterized by a delicate tonality and softness in the transitions between light and shade. He is known to have been alive on 26 February 1656, but records of the Gulden Cabinet of 1661 refer to Pieter in the past tense. Flemish painter.
