Jacques Blondeau was a seventeenth century engraver from Antwerp. He was a pupil of Frederik Bouttats. In 1675 he went to Rome, and worked there until his death in 1698. As an engraver, Blondeau made for example an engraving of Pope Urbanus VIII, but also several portraits of cardinals in Rome.
In Rome, Blondeau joined the Bentvueghels. His Bent name was Weyman. As a member of the Bentvueghels, Blondeau was very active and his name appears twice in the history of the Bent. For exemple, he wrote his name in red chalk in one of the niches in the Santa Costanza: jacobus blondeau/alias de weymyn. His name also appears on a list with members of the Bent, who were present at the inauguration of Abraham Genoels, François Moens and Pieter Verbruggen (II). (SR)
