JANSSENS Jan Willem (b. 1590, Ghent, d. ca. 1650, Ghent) Nationality : Flemish

Flemish painter, active also in Italy. He became a master in the painters' guild of his native Ghent, but before that he spent considerable time in Italy, particularly Rome, where he is documented in 1619 and 1620. There he became associated with the international Caravaggesque movement and was especially influenced by the paintings of the Utrecht Caravaggisti, such as Gerrit van Honthorst and Dirck van Baburen. Immediately after his return to Ghent, Janssens introduced the style of Caravaggio there. His altarpieces and other painted compositions with mercilessly realistic representations of biblical and hagiographic themes were particularly sought after for churches in and around Ghent.
