Karel van Mander
Karel van Mander Karel van Mander

Karel van Mander (Meulebeke, 1548 – Amsterdam, 1606) was born in Southern Netherlands and was a print artist, painter, draughtsman and artists’ biographer. During his career, he worked in various locations, including Meulebeke, Rome and Haarlem.

Once he became fully accomplished, he had several students, including his son Karel van Mander II and Hendrick Gerritsz Pot. His best-known student, however, was none other than Frans Hals. Together with Cornelis van Haarlem and Hendrick Goltzius, Karel van Mander founded the Haarlem Academy and they introduced Dutch Mannerism, a style known for its human figures with elongated and twisted bodies and small heads. In 1604, Van Mander published Het Schilder-Boeck (‘The Book of Painting’) with guidelines on how to make paintings, as well as biographies of Dutch, German and Italian artists. As an artist in his own right, Karel van Mander mainly painted religious and historical scenes.
