Bol Hans


Hans Bol (16 December 1534 - 20 November 1593), Flemish painter, draftsman, illustrator.

Famous for his miniatures, Bol took his first drawing lessons from his two uncles, Jacob Bol I and Jan Bol. At the age of fourteen he began producing waterschilderen, large compositions, painted on canvas using opaque watercolors or tempera.

After another two years spent in Heidelberg, Bol became a master of the St Luke Guild in Mechelen.

As his watercolors were more and more copied by various artist, Bol started painting miniatures on parchment, which were very popular and not only brought him a steady income, but also atracted several important collectors. After the Spanish army anexed the city in 1572, Bol settled in Antwerp, and ten years later he moved to Amsterdam.

He is considered to be one of the most important artists of the Netherlands. He was also a talented landscape artist.
