Peter Paul Rubens - andromeda

Sir Peter Paul Rubens (Dutch pronunciation: [ˈrybə(n)s]; 28 June 1577 – 30 May 1640) was a prolific seventeenth-century Flemish Baroque painter, and a proponent of an extravagant Baroque style that emphasized movement, color, and sensuality. He is well-known for his Counter-Reformation altarpieces, portraits, landscapes, and history paintings of mythological and allegorical subjects.
In addition to running a large studio in Antwerp that produced paintings popular with nobility and art collectors throughout Europe, Rubens was a classically educated humanist scholar, art collector, and diplomat who was knighted by both Philip IV, King of Spain, and Charles I, King of England.

#4 Eyck, Jan van (1395-1441)

He was very active in the actual Belgium and the Netherlands, he is traditionally known as "the father of oil painting", i'm sure you'll appreciate his artistic skills.

The mirror is a reference to the use of mirrors he used to make this painting, this is what David Hockney explains in his book 'Secret Knowledge'
