He spent a period in Italy between 1590 and 1596, after which he returned to Antwerp, where he executed a number of works for the Archduke Albert and the Infanta Isabella, and became a close collaborator of Rubens (q.v.), often providing the landscapes for large mythological or religious paintings.  His son was Jan Brueghel II (1601-1678).
