Jan Cossiers (Antwerp, 15 July 1600–4 July 1671) was a Flemish Baroque painter whose earliest works were Caravaggesque genre scenes and later specialized in histories and religious subjects.

Biography

He studied under Cornelis de Vos in Antwerp before travelling to Aix-en-Provence and then to Rome by 1624. In 1628 he entered Antwerp's guild of St. Luke. During the 1630s his painting was more strongly influenced by the monumentality and coloring of Peter Paul Rubens, with whom he also assisted on large projects. Among his late religious paintings is the large Passion of Christ (1655–6) in the Church of the Beguines, Mechelen.
