ORLEY Bernaert van (b. 1491/92, Bruxelles, d. 1542, Bruxelles) Nationality : Flemish

Bernard (or Bernaert or Barend) van Orley, Netherlandish painter of religious subjects and portraits and designer of tapestries and stained glass. He was the leading artist of his day in Brussels, becoming court painter to Margaret of Austria, regent of the Netherlands, in 1518 and to her successor Mary of Hungary in 1532. His work is characterized by the use of ill-digested Italianate motifs. There is no evidence that he visited Italy, and his knowledge presumably came from engravings and from Raphael's tapestry cartoons, which were in Brussels c.1516-19; he has (very flatteringly) been called 'the Raphael of the Netherlands'.
