Simon de Vos is a Flemish painter and draughtsman of the Baroque period, practising mainly in his home town of Antwerp.
Trained by Cornelis de Vos, a famous painter specialising in portraits, he became, at the end of his apprenticeship in 1620, master of the Guild of Saint Luke in Antwerp, at the age of only 17. It is possible that he worked for some time in the studio of Peter Paul Rubens before travelling to Rome and residing in Aix-en-Provence in the mid-1620's.
He painted many genre scenes, historical subjects and portraits of noblemen, such as this drawing which may be a study for a painting.
