Happy Birthday David Teniers II !! This Flemish painter, born in 1610, came from a family of painters; his father was a painter and then his son and son's son followed as well. His wife, Anna, was the daughter of painter Jan Bruegel. He painted group scenes of peasants engaged in various forms of “merrymaking” in golden light with great detail. He is considered one of the greatest European painters of his day. The Tavern (1651) is included below.
