APSHOVEN, Thomas van
(b. ca. 1622, Antwerpen, d. ca. 1665, Antwerpen)
Flemish painter, pupil of David Teniers the Younger. He successfully imitated David Teniers's style, and his paintings may easily be mistaken for those of Teniers. The subjects of his paintings, like those of his master, are village festivals, interiors of cabarets with peasants regaling and amusing themselves, corps-de-gardes, and chemists' laboratories.
