|Artist||Ryckaert, David, III (Flemish painter, 1612-1661)|
|Date Earliest||possibly about 1625|
|Description||David Ryckaert III was trained by his father, David Ryckaert II (1560-1607), and was influenced by both Teniers and Brouwer. Ryckaert was one of the earliest masters to be influenced by the paintings of David Teniers the younger. He created work directly emulating Teniers, but also works in his own personal style. In his tavern scenes he often employed the same model for the figures of the drinking peasants, and his palette consisted largely of cool colours which he used on a grey ground.|

Between 1640 and 1650 Ryckaert's approach to genre scenes changed: rough peasant types were replaced by composed groups of dignified people.
David Ryckaert III was employed by Archduke Leopold Wilhelm, and entered the Antwerp guild in 1636/37. He was then elected dean of the guild in 1651-52.
