a Flemish painter working in Belgium, Germany, Denmark and Sweden in the second half of the seventeenth century. He specialised in still life and trompe-l'œil; an artistic genre aiming to trick contemporary viewers into believing that the painted, two-dimensional illusions were real three-dimensional objects. Gysbrechts was born in Antwerp, where he became a member of the Guild of St. Luke in 1660. He was court painter to two Danish kings, Frederick III (1609?1675) and Christian V(1646?1699), and while in Copenhagen, created his series of Trompe-l'œil paintings.
