Abraham van Diepenbeeck

1596-1675 Belgium/Baroque

 

Brief Biography-Abraham van Diepenbeeck of 's-Hertogenbosch was a glass painter trained by his father, and he spent time in Italy working with oils. Then, in 1629 in Antwerp, he entered the atelier of Rubens, who had a profound influence on his work as a painter. His first significant work was painting windows in a chapel in the cathedral of Antwerp, where he portrayed the "Acts of Mercy." He soon after devoted himself to oil painting. In England, the Duke of Newcastle engaged him to insert designs in his publication on horsemanship and back in Antwerp; he also designed tapestries. He died in Antwerp in 1675.
