"Rothenhamer, (John,) born at Munich in 1564, went to Rome, and from thence to Venice, where he made Tintoretto his model, not only in colouring, but in taste of design and the manner of disposing his figures. His small pieces on copper were in the greatest esteem, being remarkable for the rich colouring, which he adopted after his studies in the Venetian school."
