Richard Aertsz. was the son of a poor Dutch fisherman. His leg was amputated after having been badly burned and, as a result, he chose a profession that could accommodate his handicap. Due to his remarkable talent he was sent to study with Jan Mostaert the elder, who was then a successful artist in Haarlem.

He then went to Antwerp, and was made a member of the town's Academy in ...
