Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

A self-taught artist, Joris Hoefnagel was significant to Dutch art in several ways.  He was the last significant manuscript illuminator and was one of the first to use still life as a subject for oil paintings.   Described as a "true Renaissance man", (Getty) he also was a poet, musician, topographer, engraver, prolific miniature painter and mapmaker.

His parents were wealthy as his father was a successful diamond merchant, which allowed him much travel as a youth (showing 500 of 1776 characters).
