Renaissance German painter
(Frankfurt am Main, Germany, 1578 - 1610, Rome, Italy)
Note: Elsheimer's meticulously detailed small paintings on copper would establish him as the most influential artist to follow Albrecht Dürer. He most likely arrived in Italy ca. 1598, where he quite possibly was associated with Hans Rottenhammer, and then moved to Rome in 1600, where he remained until his death.
