HOEFNAGEL Joris (b. 1542, Anwerpen, d. 1601, Wien) Nationality : Flemish

Flemish illuminator and draughtsman. He was the last of the great Flemish manuscript illuminators and the foremost topographical draughtsman of his age. His work forms a critical link between earlier manuscript illumination and ornamental design and the genre of floral still-life painting, which emerged in northern Europe at the end of the 16th century. He was the son of a diamond merchant. He travelled abroad, making drawings from archaeological subjects, and was a pupil of Jan Bol at Mechelin. He was afterwards patronized by the elector of Bavaria at Munich, where he stayed eight years, and by the Emperor Rudolph at Prague.
