Wouter Abts

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Wouter Abts (in French, Gautier Abts) was born at Lier, near Antwerp, possibly in 1582.[1] He was a pupil of Willem de Vos (Guillaume de Vos in French).[2] Little is known about his life.[3] He was admitted as a master to the Guild at Antwerp in 1604-5; and he died in 1642-43. He mainly painted genre pieces, but a winter landscape has been attributed to him.[4] He taught Adrian de Bie and Lenaert Coomans.[5]
