Flemish painter, a native of Courtrai, a pupil of his brother, Jacobs Saveria, who wrote of animals, birds and fish. Together with some other Flemish artists, he was invited by Emperor Rudolph II to Prague, where he lived until the death of the Emperor in 1612 the End of his life he spent in Utrecht. First, being at home, Savera painted landscapes, which usually portrayed the Northern nature, and then, after his journey through the Tyrol and German-speaking Switzerland, reproduced exclusively mountainous, forested area with waterfalls. In his landscapes he found in abundance were placed figures of different animals and birds, which gave him a reason to call such pictures as "heaven on Earth", "Noah's ark", "Orpheus subduing animal sounds of the lyre," etc.
