Quick Reference

(fl Mechelen, c. 1538). Flemish painter. Van Mander referred to a painter in Mechelen named Vincent Geldersman who painted a half-length figure of Leda, a Susanna, a Cleopatra with the asp and ‘other such things of which very many copies are to be seen’. Contemporary inventories confirm the identification of Geldersman with Sellaer. It is probable that two, possibly three, generations of painters bore the name and are traceable in the documentation.
