(active 1428-61)


Catalan painter, born and active mainly in Valencia. He was court painter to Alfonso V of Aragon, under whose patronage he went to Bruges in 1431 to study tapestry weaving. Dalmau's visit to Flanders is the first recorded contact of a Spanish painter with the Netherlandish school, and the only surviving painting certainly by him, the Virgin of the Councillors is clearly inspired by Van Eyck.
