Pieter Baltens de Costere, known as Custodis (1525-1598)
His career and artistic development and that of the Flemish painter Pieter Bruegel the Elder were closely intertwined.
In fact, in 1550-1551 Bruegel worked as an assistant to Peeter Baltens.

He is recognised as one of the main inventors of the genre of the village scene in Flemish and Dutch art.
