Adam Elsheimer (1578-1610)

Sierra Club


Adam Elsheimer (1578-1610) was a German painter, etcher, and draughtsman, active mainly in Italy. Although Elsheimer died young and his output was small, he played an important role in the development of 17th-century landscape painting.

Both Rubens (Staatliche Kunstsammlungen, Kassel) and Rembrandt (National Gallery, Dublin) made paintings of The Flight into Egypt inspired by Elsheimer's masterpiece, and his influence is apparent in the work of many other 17th-century artists. [Adapted from WebMuseum]
