OLIVER Isaac (b. before 1568, Rouen, d. 1617, London) Nationality : English

English miniaturist of French origin, the son of a refugee Huguenot goldsmith who settled in England in 1568. He trained under Hilliard (whose main rival he later became) and by 1590 was established in his own practice. Although Hilliard continued to receive royal favor under James I Oliver was made Limmer to the Queen Anne of Denmark in 1604, and was patronized by Henry, Prince of Wales, and his circle. His style was more naturalistic than that of Hilliard, using light and shade to obtain modelling and generally dispensing with the emblematic trappings so beloved of the Elizabethan age.
