Oil on canvas of the Flemish painter Daniel Seghers, or Zeghers, born and died in Antwerp (1590-1661). He was a pupil of Jan Brugel and a friend of Rubens. He worked for princes and kings, and painted lilies and roses with an extraordinary grace. Having converted to Catholicism, he was known as "Jesuit of Antwerp" because he became the lay brother of the order of the Jesuits. His work is found in the most important European museums. (See Benezit, volume 2).
