RYCKERE, Bernaert de
(b. ca. 1535, Courtrai, d. 1590, Courtrai)


Bernaert de Ryckere (Rijckere or Ricke), Flemish painter. The artist was born in Courtrai but became a member of the Antwerp Guild of St. Luke in 1561. Only five signed works by him are known, all in a style very much dependent upon the example of Frans Floris. A number of paintings signed with the monogram B have also been assigned to his hand.
