Biographies

The list of biographical sketches contains a description of the artist's life of whose work is present in the collections of the Flemish Art Collection (Royal Museum of Fine Arts, Antwerp, Groeninge Museum Bruges and Museum of Fine Arts, Ghent) or the partner museums and churches in Flanders. All of the chosen artists were active between the Fall of Antwerp (1585) and the Treaty of Utrecht (1713).

The biographies are all of the same format. In the first part, a celebration of the artist is provided. The influences of the artist, his style, important works and his importance as an artist are addressed. In the second part, a chronological list follows with important data in the artist's life and when possible, works of art from the collection are referred to in detail. The thumbnails beneath the biography lead you to the file of the work of art.
