Attributed to Peter Van Bloemen,
called Standard (Flemish, 1657-1720)
Born in Antwerp, van Bloemen was the brother of Jan-Frans and Norbert van Bloemen. His master was the battle painter, Simon van Douw. In 1673, van Bloemen was a master in Antwerp, but he did not stay there long. He is believed to have spent 20 years in Rome and it is known that he was working there in 1688. In 1694 he returned to Antwerp, where he had eight students in atelier. Van Bloemen is noted for his paintings of horses, Italian landscapes, battle scenes and market places. His works are in the collections of many European museums.
Van Bloeman is listed in E. Benezit, Dictionnaire Des Peintres, Sculpteurs Dessinateurs Et Graveurs.
