Biographical information
Active in
  • Antwerpen 1609 - 1656
    master in the Guild of St. Luke, Antwerp in 1609 (Rombouts/Van Lerius 1872/1961); lived 1616/17 in the Wijngaertstraat, 1617 at the Jezuitenplein 13 (De IJzeren Pan) and 1627 in the Hobokenstraat 16. Neefs painted and drew German churches e.g. the chapel of the Electors in Dresden, Bonn and Münster, which implies that he must have spent some time in Germany (Howarth 2009, p. 287, note 63). According to Härting, however, the drawing of the Bonn church (Fondation Custodia, signed and dated 1618) was made after a drawing by Steenwyck (Saur 2016).
