Giusto Utens or Justus Utens (died 1609) was a Flemish painter who is remembered for the series of Medicean villas in lunette form that he painted for the third grand duke of Tuscany, Ferdinando I, in 1599–1602.[1]

He moved to Carrara about 1580, where he married, and where later he returned and died.

The Medici villas illustrated by Utens from a bird's-eye perspective are:

Villa Medici del Trebbio
Villa Medicea di Cafaggiolo
Palazzo Pitti, the Boboli Gardens and Fort Belvedere
Villa Medici di Castello
Villa Medici La Petraia
Villa Medicea di Pratolino
Villa Medici dell'Ambrogiana
Villa Medici di Lappeggi
Villa Medici di Poggio a Caiano
Villa Medici di Serravezza
Villa Medici La Magia
Villa Medici di Marignolle
Villa Medici di Montevettolini
Villa Medici di Colle Salvetti

The three missing lunettes are thought to be the Villa di Artimino and perhaps the Villa Medici di Careggi. In the early twentieth century an anonymous artist completed the scheme, based on eighteenth-century vedute illustrating the villa at Careggi, that at Cerreto Guidi and Poggio Imperiale, which in the sixteenth century was still the Villa di Poggio Baroncelli.
