Tobias Verhaecht (1561–1631) was a painter and draughtsman active in Antwerp, Florence and Rome. Primarily a landscape painter, his style is indebted to mannerist world landscapes of artists like Joachim Patinir with high viewpoints, fantastic distant perspectives and three-colour scheme. Verhaecht was born in Antwerp. Before he entered the city’s guild of St. Luke in 1590–91, he had already spent time in Italy, first in Florence, and then as a fresco painter in Rome. Peter Paul Rubens, who was a relative by marriage, studied with him around 1592, and another student was his own son, Willem van Haecht. Verhaecht is also known for his designs for prints.

Verhaecht, Tobias (Amberes, 1561-1631). Pintor y dibujante flamenco, miembro de una familia de pintores y comerciantes de arte. Su entrada en el Gremio de Pintores de San Lucas de Amberes en 1590 abre una fulgurante carrera pictórica en la que llegaría a ser pintor de las cortes del archiduque Ernesto en Bruselas, y posteriormente del emperador Rodolfo II en Praga. De hecho participó en las decoraciones para la entrada triunfal del archiduque Ernesto en Amberes. A la vuelta a esa ciudad formó un gran taller por el que pasaron ­Willen van Haecht y Pedro Pablo Rubens. La producción de Verhaecht son los paisajes, donde las visiones panorámicas y las formaciones rocosas de perfiles agudos y cónicos son característicos de su estilo, en conexión con la tradición paisajista flamenca heredera de Joachim Patinir.
