QUELLINUS, Flemish family of artists

Artus I (Arnoldus) Quellinus was the most distinguished member of the family of artists. He trained in Antwerp with his sculptor father, Erasmus I. His collaborators at Amsterdam included his cousin, Artus II Quellinus. Artus III Quellinus, usually called Arnold, son of Artus II, settled in England in about 1680. Other members of the Quellinus family included Artus I's two brothers, Erasmus II, a painter who often collaborated with Rubens, and Hubert, an engraver who produced numerous prints after works by his relatives.
