Gaspar or Casper van Eyck (bapt. 6 February 1613 in Antwerp – bef. December 1674 in Brussels),[1] was a Flemish painter of marine subjects and sea-fights.

Van Eyck was received into the Guild of St. Luke in 1632. He traveled to Genova, where he collaborated with Cornelis de Wael. From 1656 until his death he worked in Brussels.[1] Three pictures by him are in the Madrid Gallery. He painted various types of ships, including Turkish galleys with Turkish figures on them, and was still painting in Antwerp in 1660.[2]
