Adam Van Noort (1562-1641)
Adam Van Noort made designs for engravings for the Collaert family of printmakers and publishers. He is listed as master in the painter's guild in 1587, and became its dean in 1597. He is most well known for his active studio, in which Peter Paul Rubens (1577-1640) and Jacob Jordaens (1593-1678) were his apprentices. In 1616 Jordaens became his son in law.
