Jan Baptist van Deynum, or Duinen (1620–1668), was a Flemish Baroque painter.

Biography[edit]

According to Houbraken, who summarized a three-page poem about his work by Cornelis de Bie, Jan Baptist van Deynum was a respected Flemish painter who quit his job as "hopman" of a schutterij in Antwerp in order to have more time for painting.[1] In 1662, his works could be admired in the "Koningshof" in Antwerp.[2]

According to the RKD, he was a portrait painter active in Antwerp.[3]
