Biographical information
Active in
  • Kopenhagen 1672
    Possibly assistant of his father Cornelis Norbertus Gijsbrecht at the Danish court in Copenhagen; that he had ties with the court is proven by the fact that a dated work from 1672 was already present in the Danish 'Kunstkammer' before 1689 (Koester/Brusati 1999)
  • Leiden 1674
    it is possible that he is identical with the Franciscus Gijsbrecht who was active in Leiden in 1674(Willigen/Meijer 2003, p. 90)
  • Antwerpen 1676-09-18 - 1677-09-18
