Geertgen tot Sint Jans (Netherlandish, about 1455/65 - about 1485/95)
Geertgen might originally have come from Leiden, although he moved to Haarlem, where he lived with the Knights of the Order of Saint John. He did not join the Order, but took the name ‘tot Sint Jans’, ‘at St John’s’ , from its convent. In Geertgen's rare and highly distinctive paintings, he treated light with great sensitivity and stylised his figures and animals, simplifying their forms and features.
