Biography artist: Jan Pieterszoon Saenredam (1565-1607) was a Dutch Northern Mannerist painter, printmaker in engraving, and cartographer, and father of the painter of church interiors, Pieter Jansz Saenredam. He is noted for the many allegorical images he created from classical mythology and the Bible. Abraham Bloemaert (1566-1651) was a Dutch painter and printmaker who used etching and engraving. He initially worked in the style of the “Haarlem Mannerists”, but by the beginning of the 17th-century altered his style in line with the new Baroque style that was then developing. He mostly painted history subjects and some landscapes. He was an important teacher, who trained most of the Utrecht Caravaggisti.
