Hans Bol (1534-1593) ) - Dutch School

This famous painter was born in Mechelen (Flanders). After some travelling he settled in Antwerp but religious raisons forced him to go to Amsterdam.
He work was inspired by Brueghel. It seems he never travelled to Italy. His work is therefore perhaps very Flemish in style and more natural.
 His paintings and drawings where very influential for the development of the landscape art
