Maarten van Heemskerck (1498-1574)

Dutch artist Maarten van Heemskerck (seen in a self portrait set against a view of the Colosseum) was a leading portrait and religious painter of the sixteenth century. He famously depicted the Seven Wonders of the World. His male figures have a taught countenance that hints of each sitter's focused energy.
