Friends managed to rescue a few but these are extremely rare....

He studied first under Alaert Claessen, and later, at around the age of 18, he went to study in the province of Hainaut. In Antwerp he lodged with his compatriot, the painter Jean Mandyn. Aertsen also worked in Louvain before returning to Amsterdam. He seems to have divided his time between his home town of Amsterdam and Antwerp.

Painter. Religious subjects. Designs for stained glass.

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. The young Aertsz. was reportedly likable and witty, and these personal qualities and his exceptional circumstances were perhaps a factor in making him a favoured student. It is certainly true that when Aertsz. left Mostaert his work showed a talent superior to that of his master. His first work was a painting of scenes from the life of Joseph, which he produced on the panel flaps of the high altar in the main church of Haarlem. He then went to Antwerp, and was made a member of the town's Academy in ...
