van Noort

Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

Dutch family of artists, active in the southern Netherlands. (1) Lambert van Noort and his son (2) Adam van Noort both worked in Antwerp, Lambert primarily as a designer of stained-glass windows and engravings, as an architect and, to a lesser extent, as a painter. Adam, whose fame rests mostly on his two famous pupils Peter Paul Rubens (1577–1640) and Jacob Jordaens (1593–1678), was active as a painter and designer of engravings. Rubens probably spent less than a year with Adam and cannot have learnt much. Jordaens, on the other hand, had such a powerful personality that he influenced the late works of his teacher and future father-in-law.
