Biography

 

Hans von Aachen was a mannerist style painter, who trained in the Netherlands. Von Aachen originally from Cologne, Germany, in 1597, secured a position in the imperial court of the Holy Roman Emperor Rudolph II while living and studying in Florence, Italy. Mostly painting religious, mythological and allegorical subject matter, Von Aachen is likened to the Flemish painter Bartholomeus Spranger.
