- Bouts, Dierck
- (ca. 1415-1475)Netherlandish painter, born and probably trained in Haarlem but located for most of his career in Louvain, where he married into a wealthy family and became a prosperous citizen. Outstanding among his works is the triptych The Holy Family, in the church of St. Peter in Louvain. In this and other works, theologians from the university advised him on the iconography. Several of his paintings were sold abroad and played a role in popularizing the Netherlandish style in Italy and elsewhere.
