Catalogue Note

Marcus de Vos was the dean of the tapestry craft in 1663 and 1665.  In 1675, he purchased cartoons from the estate of François van den Hecke, which were used by the workshop later in the century.  His son, Judocus (1661-1734), continued the workshop and is believed to have served as an apprentice at the Gobelins.  By 1703, he owned the largest workshop, boasting twelve looms, in Brussels.
