Vrancke van der Stockt (Flemish, before 1420—1495) lived and worked in Brussels, now in modern Belgium. He became the city's official painter in 1464, succeeding his friend and possible collaborator, the great Flemish painter Rogier van der Weyden (ca. 1399/1400—1464) in that position.
Van der Stockt was also active in town politics, holding several administrative positions including town councilor. He and his wife, Catherine de Moeyen, had five children, two of whom also became painters.
