Janssens, Abraham (1567-1632), historical painter, was born at Antwerp, where in 1607 he was dean of the master painters. Good examples of his art, which resemble that of Rubens, are to be seen in the Antwerp Museums and at Vienna. He called himself Janssens van Nuyssen.

“If God give thee not only earth but heaven, that thou shouldest rule over sun, moon, and stars, and have rule over the highest of the sons of men, it would not be enough to satisfy thee, except thou hadst God himself.”
–Jeremiah Burroughs, The Rare Jewel of Christian Contentment
