BOLLANDT, Heinrich
(b. 1577, Bayreuth, d. ca. 1651, Bayreuth)


Heinrich Bollandt (also Polland), German painter. He was one of the most important artists of the Brandenburg-Bayreuther Renaissance, active mainly in Bayreuth, but also in Lübeck and Berlin. He painted portraits and altarpieces and worked in a style that seems almost archaic and evidently depended on the art of Lucas Cranach the Elder.
