Bonaventura Peeters the Elder 

He was born and worked in Antwerp. He seems to have shared his studio with his elder brother, Gillis. Later he settled in Hoboken. He was a marine, landscape and small-scale figure painter. He painted the figures and statues in 'An Evening Service in a Church'; the church interior is by Pieter Neeffs.
