Calcar (Or Kalcker), Jean De

an eminent Flemish painter, was born at Caicar, in the duchy of Cleves, in 1499. He was a disciple of Titian, at Venice, and perfected himself by studying Raphael. He imitated those masters with such success as to deceive the most skilful critics. Among his various pieces is a Nativity, representing the angels round the infant Christ, which he arranged so that the light emanated wholly from the child. He died at Naples in 1546. See Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. Generale, s.v; Spooner, Biog. Hist. of the Fine Arts, s.v.
