Diepenbeck, Abraham Van
Diepenbeck, Abraham Van an eminent Flemish painter, was born at Bois-le-Duc in 1607, and died at Antwerp in 1675. He seems first to have practiced painting on glass. Some of his efforts of this kind are still admired in Amsterdam, particularly the windows in the cathedral, on which he painted the works of mercy, and those of the Church of the Dominicans, which are embellished with representations from the life of St. Paul. Several pictures by this master were brought to the United States some years ago, and sold for enormous prices. One of these, the Mocking of Christ, was a most admirable performance.
