Master of the Prado Redemption
Master of the Prado Redemption

The term, Master of the Prado Redemption, is a conventional way of designating an unknown artist whose works share an identifiable style. Here, it is used to designate an anonymous painter clearly influenced by Roger van der Weyden, whose main work is known as the Museo del Prado's Redemption Triptych. Active around the second third of the 15th century, this artist has traditionally been identifie

He was a Flemish painter specialising in battle painting. According to Van Mander, he received his training with Adam van Noort, although his early works are akin to those of Cornelis Floris and Cornelis de Vos. Around 1600–1601, he was admitted to the painters’ Guild of Saint Luke in Antwerp, and in 1607, he became part of the chamber of rhetoric known as de Violeren. His early works have no rela

A Flemish painter and draughtsman, brother of Cornelis and Jan de Vos. Like his brothers, he studied with David Remeeus and achieved the rank of master around 1620. His first paintings were identical in subject matter and motifs to those of Frans Snyders, with whom he worked during his training. Nevertheless, throughout the course of his career, Paul de Vos specialised in hunting scenes, for which

Painter and engraver. He entered the service of Margaret of Austria in Mechelen in 1529, at a time of renewal of the Flemish tradition in contact with the Italian Renaissance. Highly appreciated at the Habsburg court, he served Charles V during 1535. Between 1546-47 he made the cartoons for tapestries woven for Mary of Hungary in Brussels by Willem de Pannemaker (1548-54, Royal Palace, Madrid). Hi

A Flemish painter, he was an apprentice to Herman de Ryt from 1614 and visited France, Italy and Germany. In 1625, he returned to Antwerp, where he worked as a master. His work was based on that of Snyders, of whose he became a faithful follower, particularly in the detailed and decorative conception of his still lifes. Nevertheless, although Utrecht’s work adopts the same abundant arrangement com

Teniers the Younger, David

He was born into a family of artists and his father, David Teniers "the Elder", was his first master; indeed, he is referred to by scholars as "David Teniers II". He joined the Guild of St Luke in 1633 and began to sign and date his paintings that same year. During the early stage of his career his genre paintings were inspired by Brouwer and his landscapes display the influence of Momper and Bril

Snyders is one of the 17th-century Flemish painters of highest repute, both for his still lifes and for his hunting scenes, and was very well known and appreciated, particularly in Spain. Considering that one of the major specialities of the Flemish schools is animal paintings, its artists were truly geniuses at inventing the most varied hunting scenes and compositions in which beasts played a pre

Although there are no records in the Guild of Saint Luke showing him as a pupil of Sebastian Vrancx, it is clear that he received his initial training from this painter. He subsequently joined the Guild as a master around 1612–1613. Like Vrancx, he specialised in battle scenes. Even though at the beginning of his career he produced small paintings depicting scenes of skirmishes and path robberies

He started studying painting 1605, and upon returning to Antwerp in 1611, he entered the Guild of San Lucas after a period of apprenticeship with Jan Brueghel de Velours.

No other 17th-century European painter combined artistic talent, social and economic success and a high cultural level like Rubens. Though primarily a painter, he also made numerous designs for prints, tapestries, architecture, sculpture and decorative objects. His abundant work is strikingly versatile in its subject matter, including paintings on mythological, religious and historical subjects as

He descends from a family of artists who moved to Milan in 1587. The first documentary record of his work is the payment for a sculptural work in the cathedral of Milan in 1590. His first dated painting is the Pietà in Santa Maria de San Celso in Milan from 1604, around which time he worked alongside Cerano. It is particularly difficult to determine which of the two was a pioneer in achieving such

Pietro Buonaccorsi, called Perino del Vaga was, from age eleven, a pupil of Ridolfo Ghirlandaio (1483-1561); and later he was taken as a youth to Rome by an elusive painter, "il Vaga," whence the former's nomenclature. Here, he attracted the, attention of Raphael (1483-1520) and was employed as an assistant to Giovanni da Udine (1487-1564) on the decoration of the Vatican Logge (completed 1519). H

Peeters, Clara

Because all the information that we have on Clara Peeters comes from her paintings, we have to content ourselves with trying to piece together a limited biography. Her first picture dates from 1607. Her place of birth is not documented, but there are reasons to think that she based her career in Antwerp. A painting in a collection in Amsterdam is described in a document from 1635 as: "a sugar banq

This artist born on the banks of the Meuse River is considered the first Flemish landscape painter. His vast, highly personal landscapes are characterized by large expanses of terrain with high horizons and fantastic outcroppings of pointed rock that combine real and symbolic. His works’ nominal subjects are mere pretexts for the development of landscapes that are the true protagonists. He is thou

A Flemish painter and draughtsman, he was the head of the family of painters bearing the same surname. Like his two sons, Ludovicus and Pieter the Younger, he specialised in the depiction of building interiors, particularly churches. There is limited corroborated information on Pieter the Elder. It is thought that he was born in Antwerp around 1576, where his family lived. The influence of Hendric

Born around the end of the second decade of the 16th century, Anthony More trained with the Romanist painter Jan van Scorel, a prominent portraitist and excellent connoisseur of the Italian cultural scene having sojourned on the Italian peninsula on several occasions. The young artist thus learned the principles of technique and aesthetics applied to portrait painting. He soon came into contact wi
