Jan Snellinck (c. 1548 in Mechelen – 1 October 1638 in Antwerp) was a Flemish artist and art collector.

A notable pupil of Snellinck was Abraham Janssens. According to Houbraken, he was overlooked by Karel van Mander, but he was a notable painter from Mechelen, famous in his day among royalty for his heroic paintings of battle scenes. He painted for churches and heads of state and was 55 in 1604.[1]
