Maarten van Heemskerck
Dutch painter (Heemskerk, near Haarlem, 1498 - 1574 Haarlem).
Maaerten Van Heemskerck worked from 1527 to 1529 in the workshop of Jan van Scorel in Haarlem: Scorel's influence is particularly visible in the two portraits: Pieter Bicker Gerritsz, alderman of Amsterdam and Anna Codde at the wheel. Many of his early works have long been attributed to Scorel.
Maaerten Van Heemskerck was one of the first to introduce Italianism, especially the art of Michelangelo, in the Northern Netherlands.
