'Artus Wolfordt by Anthony van Dyck.
|Birth name||Artus Wolffort|
|Died||1641 (aged 59–60)
He studied first in Dordrecht, where his family had emigrated in 1581, and after his return to Antwerp around 1615 in the studio of Otto van Veen. Many of his paintings demonstrate the influence of Peter Paul Rubens either compositionally or, especially after about 1630, stylistically. He mostly painted religious works, including scenes from the life of Christ and Church fathers. Students included Pieter van Mol and Pieter van Lint.
