(b. ca. 1620, Amiens, d. ca. 1673, Antwerpen)


Flemish engraver. Born at Amiens, settled in 1654 in Antwerp where he studied engraving techniques. In 1662 he was admitted as a master in the Antwerp Guild. The majority of his engravings are based upon the designs of either Peter Paul Rubens or Anthony van Dyck.

Among Adriaen Lommelin's best works of art are his portraits after Van Dyck. These include King Charles I of England, King Ferdinand of Austria, Jacob Le Roi, Jan de Wael, and the artist, Paul de Vos. Paul de Vos (1600-1654) was a famous contemporary painter of animals and hunting scenes.

He worked for Gillis Hendricx, a publisher and printmaker in Antwerp, and for book illustration.
