Yes, it's Martin de Vos, a 16th century Belgian painter from Antwerp.
My favorite is his painting of St. Luke painting the Virgin's portrait:
(you know it's St. Luke by the bull. I do wonder if St. Luke is a self-portrait. I looked but didn't see a de Vos self-portrait on line, but St. Luke looks very Low Country to me.)
