(b Béthune, c. 1560; d c. 1626). Flemish sculptor. He was the foremost sculptor in West Flanders during the first quarter of the 17th century, developing a late Renaissance style derived from Frans Floris and Hans Vredeman de Vries. The best surviving group of his work is in St Peter's, Lo, which houses his carved wood choir-stalls (1624), an octagonal wood pulpit decorated with reliefs (1628) and an altar with oak reliefs of the Fifteen Mysteries of the Rosary, probably from the same period.
