By ROTHENHAMER, (John,) a celebrated German Historical Painter, born at Munich, in 1564, and died in 1604, aged 40; he was taught the rudiments of art by one Donauwer, an indifferent artist, whose insufficiency appeared so evident to Rothenhamer, that he determined no longer to misspend his time, but seek for improvement at Rome. When he first offered his works to the public, he painted historical subjects on copper of a small size, very delicately penciled and agreeably coloured; but soon after he finished a picture of a very large dimension, representing the Saints in glory, which added greatly to his reputation, as it shewed a good invention, good colouring, considerable elegance in the airs of the heads, and a variety in the draperies; although much esteemed and greatly rewarded for his talents, he died extremely poor, owing to his profusion and extravagance.
