Justus van Egmont

1601-1674 Flemish/Baroque

 

Brief Biography-Justus van Egmont from Leyden was a student of the Flemish artist Gaspar van den Hoecke. He later entered the atelier of Peter Paul Rubens in Antwerp. It has been considered that at one stage he came under the influence of Anthony van Dyck. In 1628, he became a Master in the Antwerp Guild of St Luke. His work took him to Paris where he was engaged in the service of Louis XIII and XIV; he had been introduced to the circle of the royal court through dealings for Rubens. He assisted Simon Vouet in undertaking several historical works and was handsomely awarded by the monarchs over many years. He became an elder at the founding of the Royal Academy of Painting and Sculpture of Paris in 1648. After Paris, he returned to Antwerp and worked on tapestries there and in Brussels. He died in Antwerp in 1674. He left behind him a large collection of the great master’s paintings amongst his own works.
