After his return he settled in Antwerp. Vaenius tried to maintain favour with the Court. Until the return of his pupil Rubens from Italy, he was the leading painter in Antwerp.
He worked for Rudolf II in Prague, was court painter of Alexander Farnese and Albrecht and Isabella. He was the most influencial tutor of Pieter Paul Rubens. In his later years he produced emblem books, his first being Q. Horatii Flacci emblemata. His designs were mostly engraved by his younger brother Gysbrecht.
