Flemish School, 17th – 18th century, male.

Painter, draughtsman, calligrapher, engraver. Religious subjects, portraits, genre scenes, seascapes, landscapes, winter landscapes.

There is little consensus on the spelling of this artist's name. It has been written variously as Backhuisen, Backhuizen and even Backhysen. Ludolf Bakhuyzen the Elder worked as a calligrapher for a commercial firm in his native town of Emden up to the age of 18. Encouraged by the sale of some drawings he went to Amsterdam and joined the studio of the landscape artist Albert van Everdingen, and later that of Hendrick Dubbels. He soon abandoned landscape painting to concentrate exclusively on seascapes and became a renowned artist during his lifetime. His reputation was such that he was sought by the most powerful monarchs of Europe to teach them art. His distinguished pupils included Tsar Peter the Great, the king of Prussia, the elector of Saxony and probably the grand duke of Tuscany. These rulers commissioned many paintings from Bakhuyzen. Right up to his death the artist demonstrated a forceful determination, even making all his funeral arrangements himself. When he died he left 78 florins to his friends so that they could enjoy a banquet after his death....

Painter, engraver, draughtsman. Religious subjects, allegorical subjects, portraits, genre scenes.

Strasbourg School.

Baldung Grien came from Alsace of a family of some social importance. His father held a position in the bishopric of Strasbourg, one of his uncles was the doctor of Emperor Maximilian and worked in Freiburg-im-Breisgau, while his brother and his cousin - both lawyers - became important officials at the imperial court. As well as his artistic studies, Baldung acquired a solid humanist education while in Strasbourg. He may have worked in the studio of Martin Schongauer, although, like his supposed birth in Weyersheim (a small village in Alsace), this has not been verified. More certain is that he completed his artistic training in Nuremberg between 1505 and 1507 as a pupil of Dürer. The two men quickly recognised each others' talents and remained friends. In 1521, when he travelled to the Netherlands, Dürer took with him several engravings by Baldung, and when he died left his former pupil a lock of his hair (now preserved in the academy in Vienna)....

From 1500 to 1508, Jacopo de' Barbari painted court portraits in Germany. He moved to Nuremberg where he worked in the service of the Emperor Maximilian. Here, as in Venice, he is believed to have collaborated with Anton Kolb. He is also mentioned in Weimar, Wittenberg, Naumburg and Torgau. By 1507 Barbari was in the Low Countries in the service of Count Philip of Burgundy, together with Gossart, whom he protected.
