Artists who influenced Balthasar van der Ast
Balthasar van der Ast was born in Middelburg, Netherlands. Although the date of his birth is not recorded, legal action by his acting guardian and brother, Jacob, on 30 June 1618 and on 13 September 1619 indicates that Balthasar turned twenty-five (his maturity) around this time. Thus he was probably born between 1593 and 1594. He was orphaned when his father Hans, a wealthy widower, died in 1609. ... more (Google)Artists who were influenced by Balthasar van der Ast
