Amongst Wolfordt's most characteristic works are serial representations of the Twelve Apostles, the Four Evangelists and Four Fathers of the Church, shown half-length. The large output of various versions that have come down to us, often differing in quality, suggests that he must have had a workshop. The positioning of the figures in the picture plane, combined with their bulky appearance is characteristic for the artist's treatment of the subject. Wolfordt's work is discussed at length by Hans Vlieghe, `Zwischen Van Veen und Rubens: Artus Wolffort (1581-1641) ein vergessener Antwerpener Maler', in Wallfraf-Richartz-Jahrbuch, vol. XXXIX, 1977, pp. 93-196.
