Additional Links

Painter, born Louvain, Belgium, c.1460;died Antwerp, 1530. He is known to have been the son of a smith, but the familiar stories concerning him are legends. He was the founder of the school of Antwerp, his work marking a great advance over the Flemish primitives. He introduced large figures and added breadth, and is noted for rich color and poetic feeling. His two finest paintings are the triptych in the Antwerp Museum, "The Deposition of Christ," and that in the Brussels Museum, "The Life of Saint Ann." His skill in portraiture is evident in "The Banker and His Wife," in the Louvre.
