Dutch. 1494-1533. "He learned from a goldsmith, the use of the point and the engraver, which he carried to a surprising pitch of perfection for the time in which he lived. His execution is neat and clean, but as his strokes are equally fine in objects in the foreground as in the distance, and as there is want of connection in the masses, his plates, although extremely neat, are inferior to those of Duerer in firmness and harmony of effect." B. 10. Original. [P. 11; see entries 03520602, 03520603, 03520604, 03520605, and 03520606 for the group of works by this artist.]
