Drs. Jeroen Luyckx
Jeroen Luyckx (1991) graduated as a Master in Art History at KU Leuven (University of Leuven) in 2013. From 2012 to 2013, he worked for Illuminare as a student, supporting the daily operations, processing the archive of Prof. Dr. Antoine de Schryver, and supporting the exhibition and publication of 'Hieronymus Cock - The Renaissance in Print'. From 2013 to 2014, he was enrolled in a second Master at VU University Amsterdam, focussing on object-based research. Within this program, he was active as an intern at the Print Room of the Rijksmuseum (Rijksprentenkabinet), researching the Netherlandish, hand-coloured woodcuts from the 16th century.
As of September 2014, he is undertaking a doctoral research on the output, family and milieu of the Antwerp-based printmaker and publisher Hans I Liefrinck (c. 1515-1573). As part of his doctoral research, he is currently active at the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam as a research fellow of The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. This project is supported by Huigen Leeflang (Curator of Prints at the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam) and supervised by Jan Van der Stock (Professor at the University of Leuven).
