Dirck Hals was born in Haarlem, Noord-Holland, Netherlands, in 1591.[1]His parents had recently come to Haarlem from Antwerp, Belgium.

He was trained as an artist by his older brother, the famed painter Frans Hals, and became an accomplished painter, albeit far less famous than his older brother. From 1627 until his death in 1656 he was a member of the St Luke's guild of Haarlem. According to the Rijksmuseum website, "One of [his] favourite themes was groups of people enjoying themselves either outdoors or in a typical Dutch interior. "[2]

He married Agneta Jans. Seven children were born to their marriage. The eldest child, son Anthonie Hals, also became a painter.
