Vroom, Hendrick Cornelisz
Haarlem, H. 1566 - Haarlem, 1640

Considered the pioneer of Dutch seascape painting, he received his training in Delft, where his mother’s family lived. According to Van Mander, his stepfather, a ceramic painter like Vroom’s father, wanted him to follow the same career path. Consequently, Hendrick Cornelisz fled and embarked to Spain. From there, he went to Italy, where he worked for various ecclesiastical patrons in Florence and

Tintoretto, Jacopo Robusti
Venice (Italy), 1518/19 - Venice, 1594

In his biography of Tintoretto Carlo Ridolfi recounts the painter’s fleeting stay at Titian’s studio. But despite the unquestionable authority of this narrative, Tintoretto’s early works bear little resemblance to those of that artist from Pieve di Cadore. His paintings from the late 1530s—The Holy Family with Saint Jerome, the portrait of attorney Girolamo Marcello (private collection, Lucerne),

Procaccini, Giulio Cesare
Bologna, 1574 - Milan, 1625

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

He became a history painter in Utrecht at the workshop of Anthonis van Blockland (1533/34–1583) and remained there for two years until the master’s death. Afterwards, he returned to Delft where he established h

Metsu, Gabriël
Leiden, 1629 - Amsterdam, 1667

He was the son of Jacques Metsu (1587/89–1629), a Flemish painter based in Leiden. In 1648, he played an active role in founding the Guild of Saint Luke in his native city. The records held at the guild’s register reveal that he left Leiden in 1650. He returned in 1654, and in 1657, he moved permanently to Amsterdam, where he remained until his death. In 1658, he married Isabella de Wolff, who was
