ARCHITECTURE AND SCULPTURE

 


Artus Quellinus the  Elder.
 


Artus Quellinus the  Elder

(b Antwerp, bapt 30 Aug 1609; d Antwerp, 23 Aug 1668).

 Sculptor, son of Erasmus Quellinus. He is generally recognized as the greatest Flemish sculptor of the Baroque. After training with his father, in 1634 he travelled to Italy and worked in the studio of François du Quesnoy in Rome. By 1639 he had returned to Antwerp, where in 1640 he became a master in the Guild of St Luke and married Margaretha Verdussen; in the same year he took over his father’s studio. His pupils included Peeter Verbrugghen, his cousin Artus Quellinus, Gabriel Grupello, Guillielmus Kerricx and probably Louis Willemsens.
