Johann Boeckhorst  (b Munster or Rees, c. 1604; d Antwerp, April 21, 1668)

He was a Flemish painter and draughtsman of German birth.  Boeckhorst became a cleric at the seminary of St. Clemens in Germany in 1621 but later moved to Antwerp where, in 1626,  he became a pupil of Jacob Jordaens and Peter Paul Rubens.  In 1633/34, while serving as an assistant of Peter Paul Rubens, Boeckhorst became a free master of the Antwerp guild of St. Luke.  In 1635 under the guidance of Rubens, he collaborated with Jacob Jordaens on a work created to commemorate Cardinal Infant Ferdinand’s entry into Antwerp.  Boeckhorst also worked together with Rubens on a painting, depicting the life of Hercules for the Torre de la Parada, Philip IV's hunting lodge outside Madrid, and on a series of paintings  to decorate the Pompa Introitus Ferdinandi. 

Boeckhorst traveled throughout Italy between 1635 and 1637 and returned in 1638 to visit Rome.  He also completed numerous commissions in the 1630s as an independent painter, like the 26 biblical scenes for the Falcon Monastery in Antwerp.  In addition, Boeckhorst collaborated on numerous commissions with notable artists like J. Fyt, J. Brueghel I, Fr. Snyders, and J. Wildens, who were also influenced by Rubens. 

The majority of Boeckhorst’s commissions date after c. 1650 and were granted by churches and monasteries around Antwerp.  During this time, Boeckhorst created altarpieces for churches in Munster, painted works with Old Testament subjects for the private art market in Antwerp, and designed tapestries with mythological themes and illustrations.
