    Renier Meganck or Megan was a Flemish painter and printmaker known for his landscapes and still lifes. Meganck was a student of Leo van Heil in Brussels. In Ghent he became master of the local painters' guild in 1661. After that he worked in Central Europe and in Vienna where he was active as an imperial court painter and art dealer. He was able to spend some time in the studio of Hans de Jode in Vienna with whom similarities in his art can be seen.
    Among his patrons was Karl Eusebius, Prince of Liechtenstein, founder of the Liechtenstein Collection.
    Around 1668-1669, he was present in Kroměříž (in the Czech Republic), where he worked with the help of the painter Kegel on a series of landscapes for the archbishop's castle, including a remarkable set of spectacle landscapes.
    Meganck's landscapes are impregnated with a form of magic realism, that is to say a great realism in the detail, in the Nordic style, in the foliage in particular, but with an invented and strange composition. Certain processes are characteristic of the relief. For example, a very low or diagonal horizon or a whole set of strong contrasts between light and shadow giving a dramatic aspect to the composition.
    Meganck's paintings are preserved in Kroměříž and Olomouc, among other places, as well as in Austrian museums (the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna, the Liechtenstein Museum in Vienna, and the Harrach Collection in Schloss Rohrau).
