Bruyn was the leading portrait painter in Cologne in the 16th century. His birth date is known from Friedrich Hagenauer's portrait medallion of 1539, inscribed bartholomaus bruyn pictor coloniensis anno aetatis xlvi.

His earliest documented altarpiece, the Coronation of the Virgin (1515-16; German priv. col.), was painted for Dr Peter von Clapis, law professor of the University of Cologne, and his wife (showing 500 of 5992 characters).
