November 1971 as Velazquez. - Flemish portrait painter, brother of the animal painter Paul de Vos and brother in law of Frans Snyders. V. was taught painting in the workshop of J. Remäus; in 1608 he was master of the Anwerp St. Luke's guild. Occasionally he cooperated with Rubens and Jordaens. His portraits, among the best of their time, stand out for their liveliness and truthfulness which was probably a reason why V. was a painter of the Antwerp citizens and not painter to a court.
