Jan Thomas van Ieperen (5 February 1617 – 6 September 1673) was a Flemish Baroque painter and engraver active in Antwerp and at the Habsburg court in Vienna.[1]

He was born in Ypres. Like his contemporary, Frans Wouters, many of his works translate the monumental Baroque style of Peter Paul Rubens into the small context of cabinet paintings. He painted a portrait of Holy Roman Emperor Leopold I in theatrical costume.[2] He also made large-scale paintings and mezzotints.[1] He died in Vienna.

There is painting by van Ieperen in the Norton Art Museum in West Palm Beach, Florida ("Perseus Rescueing Andromeda").
