(b. ca. 1480, Amsterdam, d. 1547, Antwerpen)

St Luke Painting the Virgin

Engraving, 170 x 124 mm
Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York

Dirk Jacobsz. Vellert was influenced by Jan Gossart early on in his career, when he began to fill his prints with Italian Renaissance ornament and classically inspired architectural settings in carefully measured spaces. St Luke painting the Virgin expressed in prints some of Gossart's achievements in his paintings of the same theme in Prague and in Vienna.
