Joahim Patinir (also: Patenier) was born c. 1480 probably in Dinant, near Namur. No records exist about Patinir’s training and early work. In 1515, he was elected master to the Antwerp St. Lukas Guild. He is noted as one of the earliest painters to make landscape a main element of his compositions.
