40 Discovered works of art  •  ID: #172
Late Renaissance   •   Pieter Coecke van Aelst @ Wikipedia

Whether Pieter Coecke van Aelst was a genius can not be said from today's perspective. But one thing is certain: he was a well-traveled man, an intellectual entrepreneur and a gifted translator, who apparently mastered several languages ??and translated specialist literature from Italian into German, Flemish or French. He was a painter, architect, author, sculptor - artist. He created paintings in the lush and detailed style of his time. His works, which received much attention and are still admired today, include " The Last Supper " - a triptych. He was inspired by Leonardo Da Vinci's version of this motif. Also influences of Albrecht Dürer should find themselves in this special work. Zigfach the painting was copied in his studio of assistants, was in the 16th century probably a kind of bestseller. Pieter Coecke van Aelst undoubtedly belonged to the established artist scene of his time. He designed tapestries, had them made in small production centers, and the rulers of his day appreciated his tapestry design. Not without reason he was in the meantime also court painter with Karl V.

On August 14, 1502 Pieter Coecke van Aelst was born in Aalst, the son of the deputy mayor and therefore safe in affluent conditions. Little is known about his childhood. At any rate, Van Aelst studied painting with experts from the Renaissance scene in Brussels. He undertook educational journeys to Italy, spent a long time in Turkey, tried to serve the sultan in Constantinople. Of course, he later incorporated all these influences into his art. Through his work as a translator of Italian textbooks on architecture - so he is said - he has established the topic of Renaissance in the countryside. At any rate, the Italian influence should be clearly visible in his characters. The highly productive van Aelst certainly mastered the marketing of his art in all its forms. He was married twice. He had five children from the two marriages, but he is said to have had two illegitimate children. Pieter Coecke van Aelst died at the age of 48 on 6 December 1550 in Brussels. © Meisterdrucke
