Lucas van Leyden

Leiden 1489/1494 - Leiden 1533

Lucas van Leyden produced and sold engravings when he was only nine years old. He studied painting with his father, Hugo Jacobsz and with his fellow city-dweller Cornelis Engelbrechtsz. His period in Leiden is documented from 1514 to 1529.
In 1521 he was in Antwerp, when he met Albrecht Dürer. Probably he is 'Lucas de Hollander' who was registered as a master in Antwerp in 1522. He visited Gossaert in Middelburg and travelled with him through Flanders in 1522 or 1527.
In 1526, he painted a large altar piece showing a depiction of 'The Last Judgement'; it was commissioned by the Leiden family Van Swieten and now hangs in the De Lakenhal Museum.
Lucas van Leyden was active as painter, engraver and designer of woodcuts and stained glass. His graphical work is extensive and shows influences of Dürer and Marcantonio Raimondi.
