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 where he painted a portrait of Holy Roman Emperor Leopold I in theatrical costume.[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.[2] He also made large-scale paintings and mezzotints.[1] He died in Vienna.
