De Momper came from a Flemish family of dealers and artists. He was apprenticed to his father, and became master in the painter's guild in 1581. Later in the decade he journeyed to Italy. He became dean of the Guild in 1611. He often collaborated with other figure painters, such as Jan Brueghel and Van Dyck's master, Hendrick Van Balen (1575-1632).
