Hans Sebald Beham was born in 1500 in Nuremberg, Germany. He is best known as one of the largest producers of small prints engravings. This also includes his younger brother, Barthel Beham, whom Hans taught himself. His copperplate engravings center around biblical and mythological scenes with an Albrecht Dürer influenced style that was common at the time.
Hans Sebald Beham (1500-1550) was a German artist. This is a German facsimile reproduction of his original work.
