Franciscus Gijsbrechts


Geboren in Antwerp (BE).

Franciscus Gijsbrechts (1649, Antwerp – after 1677), was a Flemish Baroque painter. He was the son of the still life painter Cornelis Norbertus Gijsbrechts and Anna Moons. He worked in Copenhagen in 1672 and is possibly identical with the Franciscus Gijsbrecht who was active in 1674 in Leiden.

The last known record of the artist is that he became master in the Antwerp Guild of St. Luke in 1673.

He is known for vanitas and tromp l'oeil paintings in the style of his father.
