Jacobus Ignatius de Roore was born at Antwerp in 1686. He was the son of a goldsmith, who intended to bring him up to his own profession, but his father died when he was very young, and his mother permitted him to indulge the inclination he had shown for art. He was at first placed under the care of Louis van der Bosch, under whom he studied for two years, and then entered the school of Caspar Jacobus van Opstal. He painted historical subjects and conversations; in the former, he adopted the style of Richard van Orley, and in the latter imitated that of the younger Teniers. His works were held in the highest estimation, and he was loaded with commissions, not only for the collections of Brabant and Flanders, but also for those of Holland. When not more than twenty years of age he was received into the Academy at Antwerp, and was considered one of the ablest artists of his time. He was much employed in embellishing the saloons of the principal mansions, and in painting the ceilings of the public edifices. One of his most admired performances was a saloon and ceiling, representing the ' History of Pandora,' painted for the family of Hasselaer, in 1740. He died at Antwerp in 1747.
