Maarten de Vos ( 1532 - 1603)
Painter and draughtsman. Pupil of Pieter de Vos, follower of Frans Floris in Antwerp and presumably of Jacopo Tintoretto in Venice. 1550-1558 in Italy; visited Rome, Venice and possibly Florence. In 1558 master in the Antwerp Guild of St Luke. In 1571 and 1572 dean of the Guild of St Luke. From 1575 mainly print designs. Documented as a Lutheran in 1584, adapting to the prevailing Catholicism in 1585. On the Summer of 1589 a short stay in Ghent. Apart from his sons Daniel (1568-1605) and Maarten the Younger (1576-1613), eleven pupils were registered with the Guild of whom only Wenzel Coeberger (1573) is well known.
