Jacques d'Arthois (12 October 1613 (baptised) - May 1686) was a Flemish Baroque painter who specialized in landscapes.


Biography

D'Arthois was born in Brussels. He was apprenticed to Jan Mertens on 11 January 1625 and became a master in the Brussels Guild of St. Luke in 1634. He had his own workshop and took on pupils, among them his brother Nicolaes, his son Jan Baptist, Alexandre van Herssen (or possibly Salomon Leonardus Harssens[1]), and Philippe van Dapels.[2] He was especially good at painting tree trunks covered in moss and ivy.[3] Paintings from his workshop are referred to collectively as "The Sonian Forest Painters".

In 1655 he was made chartered tapestry cartoon designer of the city of Brussels. At the time of his death he owned several houses (one of which was in the Sonian forest) and a painting collection, though his lavish lifestyle had left him severely in debt. He died in Brussels.
