(b. ca. 1590, Haarlem, d. ca. 1635, Den Haag)
Gillis Quintijn was a Dutch author whose book entitled Hollandsche-Liis met de Brabandsche-Bely (The Dutch Elizabeth with Bellie of Brabant) was published in Haarlem in 1629. In this book, conservative anxieties concerning the inherent evils of dance were articulated. The illustration that accompanies the author's attack of dancing portrays a scene in which young people dance with such zest that matters have gotten totally out of hand as couples throw footwarmers into a roaring fire and generally comport themselves with frenzied indecency.
