Maerten Jacobsz van Heemskerck Biography

Maerten Jacobsz van Heemskerck is one of the main representatives of the so-called Netherlandish Romanists. (Netherlandish “Romanist” is a term used to denote a large group of leading Flemish artists of the first half of the 16th century, who integrated the classical imagery in their work. From this time on, painting mythological scenes and nudes as the main subject also became popular in the Netherlands.) The artist was born in Heemskerk, near Haarlem, in 1498.
