Biographical information
Active in
  • Den Bosch 1615 - 1620
    According to Houbraken 1718-1721, repeated by Weyerman, van Diepenbeeck learned glassmaking in Italy. He seems to have experienced severe frustrations in doing so, which was one of the reasons for him to give up this trade, again according to Houbraken. If he was in Italy it must have been in the late 1610s or early 1620s, during the time he studied glass painting. According to Steadman van Diepenbeeck left Den Bosch after his father's death in 1620 and went to Antwerp.
  • Antwerpen 1622 - 1675

Enlisted as member of the Sodality of the Unmarried Men of Age (‘Sodaliteit van de bejaerde jongmans’) in April 1634, consultor of this Sodality in september 1634 and September 1636.
