Artist Bio

Barthel Beham was German engraver and painter born in 1502 in Nurembuerg, Germany. It is presumed that Barthel Beham had learned his skills from his older brother, Hans Sebald Beham and from Albrecht Dürer himself. He is best known for his portraits that were seen as objective and his strong skills in the use of the third dimension. He is also known as an early creator of work in vanitas, or depictions of wealth and death.
