Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

(fl Cologne, c.1470–1510). Painter and illuminator, active in Germany. Although he established himself as one of the leading painters in Cologne, he also had links with Gelderland, Arnhem and Utrecht, and his style shows considerable Netherlandish influences. This has led many scholars to speculate that he originally came from the eastern Netherlands. His small oeuvre consists predominantly of religious panel paintings, although some portraits have also been attributed to him.
